The plaintiffs, who identified as executive members of the APC Ganduje ward, said they brought the motion on behalf of the executive members of the ward.

The executive council of Ganduje's ward, led by Gwanjo cited allegations of bribery against Ganduje levelled by the Kano state government as the reason for the suspension.

Imran Muhammad, a member of the APC and proud supporter of the former president, Muhammadu Buhari, shared copy of the court order via his X handle (formerly known as Twitter) @Imranmuhdz recalls that a group known as the Progressives Foundational Movement (PFM) called on security agencies to arrest the mastermind of Ganduje's suspension in his ward in Kano state.

The PFM chairman, Emmanuel Aribigbe, alleged that the faces of persons behind Ganduje’s suspension were mole within APC sponsored by the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso.
