    A Federal High Court in Kano has granted an application by the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, for substituted service on APC Ganduje Ward executive members who suspended him from the party.

    Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman granted the application moved by Ganduje’s lawyer, Hadiza Nasiru Ahmad, on Tuesday.

    The ward executives led by one Haladu Gwanjo and eight others had on April 15 suspended Ganduje from the party for alleged infractions.

    The Federal High Court had on April 18 granted an interim order asking parties to maintain status quo pending hearing and determination of the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Ganduje against his suspension.

    The APC National Chairman is seeking a declaration of the court that his suspension from the party by the ward executives was illegal and ultra-vires having not given him opportunity to defend himself which he said amounted to denial of his fundamental right.

    Ganduje is also seeking N100 million damages against the respondents for violating his right to fair hearing.

    His counsel explained that while the respondents were served with the court summons through the village head of Ganduje in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State, a date would be fixed for hearing in the matter.

    Justice Usman Na’Abba of the Kano State High Court had on 17 April granted an interim order affirming the suspension of the APC national chairman.

    The judge later granted an order restraining his earlier order.
