The Kano State chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) has suspended its chairman, Alhaji Umar Haruna Doguwa, over alleged violation of the party’s constitution.
The party also suspended its organising secretary, Alhaji Sanusi Suraj Kwankwaso.
The suspensions are a fallout of the political battle of supremacy in the state between Governor Abdullahi Umar Gwanduje and his predecessor, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso.
The suspension was announced yesterday by the APC Secretary in the state, Alhaji Abbas Sani Abbas, shortly after a meeting with party members at the party secretariat in Kano.
Abbas said the Party State Central Working Committee has appointed Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas as the interim chairman of the party.
He also said the committee has set up a 7-man disciplinary committee headed by Alhaji Haruna Amadu Dan-Zago, to review series of complaints levelled against the two suspended executives.
The secretary said the suspended executives if found guilty of the allegations levelled against them will be punished according to the weight of their alleged offences.
Abbas, therefore, urged members of the committee, who have only one week to complete their investigation and present their findings to the party, to review the complaints against the suspended executives critically.
The meeting was attended by local government party chairmen, members of the State House of Assembly and other members of the party.
