The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Kano state governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf of sponsoring protests as part moves to remove Abdullahi Ganduje from his post as the National Chairman of the party.

Daily News 24 reports that the APC was plunged into crisis weeks ago, following the suspension of Mr Ganduje by executives of the APC in his native Ganduje ward in Kano alleged corruption.

However, a Kano High Court, which had earlier affirmed the suspension had vacated its order last week.

In a statement on Friday, by the Special Assistant to the National Chairman on Civil Society and Support Group, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi, revealed that the Kano state government hired protesters from the street , mostly Kwankwasiyya members, some of whom are from the North-central zone, to demand for the National Chairman’s resignation.

According to Ogenyi, the protest was coordinated by the Chief Press Secretary to the Kano State Governor, Sanusi Bature who has promised the governor that he has the anti dot to remove Ganduje from office.

He said “some of the protesters, who were shortchanged in the process of sharing the largesse given by the Kano State Government exposed the brains behind the protest”, adding that “they were promised fifty thousand naira each but were later given ten thousand naira each by the organizers.”

Mr Ganduje’s Special Adviser also revealed that “some of the hired protesters, who came on Thursday in the disguise of North-central APC stakeholders, have already been identified as sponsored elements.

“We are the true APC Stakeholders in the North Central, you witnessed the leaders like Senator Ameh Ebute CON, Former Senate President of Nigeria, Senator Jack Tilley Gyado, Ambassador Adadu Eachi, Nentanwe Goshwe, the 2023 APC Governorship Candidate Plateau State, Prof. Salihu Ali zaga, former Commissioner in Nasarawa State, among several others too numerous to mention on print.

While calling on security agents to be vigilant in order to ensure securityof lives and property, the APC chieftain said: “Some of the hired protesters also forgot that they were dressed in kwankwasiyya T-shirts and caps during the protest to the APC national secretariat, yet claimed to be members of the APC,what a dangerous move to scuttle peace of our party.

The statement, however, described the development as unfortunate and desperation taken too far, calling on Nigerians especially lovers of democracy to come out in defense of it.

Comrade Ogenyi said: “We are privy to credible information that Governor Yusuf working with some persons from the North Central State and has doled out huge sum of money to some persons to sustain campaign against the Ganduje’s led working committee in his desperate but fruitless mission to remove Ganduje as the national chairman of the APC.

“They have now resorted to using some persons in the North-central geo-political zone to demand Ganduje’s removal after they failed woefully to achieve their satanic agenda in Kano state. What is of concern to us is the wastage of state resources badly in need in Kano state for the provision of basic amenities to our people. This is politics taken too far.”

According to the statement, “the APC chieftain told Governor Yusuf and his fellow anti-democratic forces in Kano state, who are bent on undermining Ganduje that their plot would fail like a pack of cards.”

The APC “called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the Independent and Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) to beam their searchlights on the authorities in Kano state over the usage of public funds.”
