Two-term Kano State Governor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has again declared that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was the target of masterminds of his suspension from the party and ultimately, removal as national chairman.

Ganduje disclosed this on Monday while receiving party faithful who stormed the party national secretariat to pledge their loyalty to his leadership.

The group was led by Professor Salihu Ahmad Alizaga.

The APC National Chairman who accused the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, and the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) of instigating his purported suspension, said the opposition party has its gaze on Aso Rock but declared that the sitting president would earn a seamless victory in 2027.

He said: “They are so afraid because we are consolidating. They are so afraid all over the country because we are receiving new entrants into our party. That is creating fear in their minds. They are already eyeing 2027, but that time, there is no vacancy. Only our President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will continue as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

He assured the party supporters that the recent move to suspend him was a storm in a teacup.

“So, we urge you to be committed to our party so that our party will continue to forge ahead.

“We have had your commitment and speeches, and we understand your mission. The whole drama, political rascality, started from Kano with the government. Instead of responding to the yearnings, needs, and demands of the people of Kano state, they decided to divert attention.

“Our eyes are on those who are diverting our attention to political propaganda against the APC. Can we allow them to continue like that? We understand what they are doing. It is a political drama.

“What they are doing is African magic drama in order to convey a failed program and projects by failed politicians. We will not allow them to continue with that. They are also sponsoring pockets of diffident protest from all over the country. They are spending a huge amount of money in order for people to demonstrate against the leadership of our party. It is a complete failure from what we have seen all over the country.

“Now, you should know that they are sponsored by the Kano State Government. And they are a small party. They are a micro party. They are a party that is terribly defeated all over the country. It is a party that is breaking down. It is a party that is a mixture of failed politicians. If you follow what is happening in that party, you will find out that it is a party that is sharply divided between those who are authentic members of the party and those who are fake members of the party individualistic and so arrogant in the management of the political party.”

Speaking earlier, the Convener of the solidarity walk, Prof. Salihu Ahmad Alizaga, said loyal party men and women in thousands have converged to show solidarity with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the National Chairman of APC.

“We are here to tell the whole world that, APC is one united family, devoid of rancour as being erroneously portrayed and speculated by few individuals under the obvious sponsorship of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP led Kano State Government.

“We advise those who wish to be National Chairman after Dr Abdullah Ganduje, to wait till the next elective convention where everyone will be allowed to test their popularity in the convention field.

“The NEC of our great party has elected Dr Abdullah Ganduje as the National Chairman, and he has a tenure of office to complete. There is no ambiguity at all.

“As faithful party men and women, we unequivocally pass a vote of absolute confidence on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the President, Commander in Chief of Armed Forces, Federal Republic of Nigeria and our egalitarian National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for their jobs well done. Our support for the two of you is one hundred percent.

“We are confident that those who want the National Chairman removed are those who are interested in unseating President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in 2027. We can not sacrifice competence on the altar of mediocrity.”
