The Nation noted Ganduje's remarks.

Speaking at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja when the forum of APC state chairmen paid him a solidarity visit, Ganduje said:

"We were so astonished when we heard the news (of his suspension) but we were not surprised when we discovered that the great threat that APC overwhelmingly poses to other parties is real and Kano state is not an exception.
“The government in Kano state is behind this drama. Even the drama is one kind of drama that is called Africa Magic. This is Africa Magic and it is not leading democracy anywhere."

Meanwhile, Cornelius Ojelabi, the acting chairman of the forum, said they were at the party’s national secretariat to affirm confidence in the former Kano state governor.
