The court specifically prohibited Haladu Gwanjo and eight others from implementing the purported decision made during the alleged emergency meeting of the supposed executive members of the APC Ganduje Ward in Dawakin Tofa local government, which took place on April 15.

Recall that the High Court in Kano, presided by Justice Usman Na’abba, had on Wednesday granted an ex parte order restraining the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, from parading himself as a member of the party.

Na’abba’s order followed an ex parte motion filed by Dr. Ibrahim Sa’ad on behalf of two executive members of Ganduje’s ward, Dawakin-Tofa Local Government Area, the Assistant Secretary, Laminu Sani, and legal adviser, Haladu Gwanjo (plaintiffs), who were part of the nine ward executives that suspended Ganduje on Monday.

However, Dr. Ganduje, through his legal team, in Suit No. FHC/KN/CS/122/2024, had approached the Federal High Court for the enforcement of his fundamental right to a fair hearing.

The order issued by the court presided over by Justice A. M. Liman, becomes effective from April 17, pending the hearing in a substantive suit in the enforcement of the fundamental human rights of the APC National Chairman as subsumed under Section 46 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The case is fixed for April 30 for hearing.

The 14 respondents in the case include Haladu Gwanjo, Na Lami Mai AC, Muhammadu Baiti, Danmalam Gale, Musa Lado and Laminu Sani Barguma, Umar Sanda, Auwal Galadima and Abubakar Dauda.

Other respondents are the Nigeria Police Force, Commissioner of Police Kano Command, Inspector General of Police, Department of State Services, and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps.

Following an affidavit in support of the Motion sworn to by Sulaiman Sulaiman from Kano that was filed at the court’s registry, and also after hearing from the Counsels of the applicant, Jazuli Mustapha and Hadiza Nasir, the court, in response to their prayers orders as follows:

The order said: “That all the Respondents, their servants, agents or privies are hereby restrained from implementing and or given effect to the purported decision reached during the purported emergency meeting of the alleged Executive members of APC Ganduje Ward, held at Ganduje Ward of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State on April 15, 2024 pending the hearing and determination of the substantive application for the enforcement of fundamental rights of the Applicant.

“That all the parties are hereby mandated to maintain status quo before the purported emergency meeting of the alleged Executive members of APC Ganduje Ward, and to stay all action in respect of this matter pending the hearing and determination of the substantive application.”
