Ganduje As National Chairman Will Incur Legal, Other Liabilities For Us – APC Forum

Court Order: Rivers APC Faction Asks Ganduje To Step Aside

by Victor Ndubuisi

Abdullahi Ganduje, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been asked to resign by the Emeka Beke-led group in Rivers State.

The troubled APC Publicity Secretary for the state, Darlington Nwauju, stressed during a media briefing in Port Harcourt that Ganduje must either go back to his ward to address his suspension or take legal action if he hopes to maintain his post.

Nwauju emphasised that the party’s constitution only gives ward executives and members the power to suspend or expel members. She urged the national chairman who is now under suspension to resign so that his deputy can lead the organisation.

“First of all, suspension of party members or expulsion as the case may be, is the responsibility of the foundation organ of the political party, which is the Ward.


“Article 9 of our party’s constitution, 2022 as amended, clearly talks about membership of our party which resides in the Wards.

“And when your membership is questioned, then it goes to any foundation of whatever you are doing for the political party. It questions any other thing that you do for the political party.

“Talking about disciplinary measures or punishments for party members, that is captured under article 21(3) of our party’s constitution, and we have disciplinary procedures which start from the Ward again.

“And so, if the Ward has taken a decision, it requires that Abdullahi Ganduje, Chairman of our party either goes back to his Ward to placate the people of his Ward to get the decision reviewed and the suspension can be vacated, or he goes to a court of competent jurisdiction to vacate his suspension.

“Now a High Court has affirmed his suspension, it becomes a more serious issue, it means that he needs to step aside as National Chairman of our party for the Deputy National Chairman (North), to act as chairman, pending the determination of the matter or pending his replacement by the National Executive Committee of our great party.

“Do not also forget the fact that the party has been moving on with the moral burden of having to shove the people of the North Central or deny them their right to a replacement for the position of the National Chairmanship of the APC.


“Because, in a situation where the former occupant of that office, His Excellency, Abdullahi Adamu resigned from that position, coming from the North Central zone of the country, the party’s constitution clearly spells out that someone from his state or his zone should also take over that office.

“And so, as an individual, I wish that the party will explore this very opportunity to right the wrong of reverting and allowing someone from the North Central to occupy the seat of National Chairman of our great party,” he declared.
