Following the suspension of the member representing Kano Municipal in the House of Representatives, Sha’aban Ibrahim Sharada, there is tension in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State.
The suspension of Sharada, a former media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, was announced in a letter signed by Abdullahi Umar, the chairman of his ward executive in Sharada ward of Kano Municipal LGA for alleged anti-party activities and assassination of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
However, another faction of the ward executive said the suspension was null and void.
The faction said the majority of the executive were not carried along by Umar, who they have now declared suspended from the party.
In the disclaimer letter issued by the assistant financial secretary of the ward, Kabiru Abdu and 18 other members of the ward executive, they said those behind the “suspension” were the same people that disallowed the lawmakers from revalidating his membership card earlier in the year.
