The leader of distressed members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano, Alhaji Ahmadu Haruna Danzago has dragged the APC state Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas and Secretary, Ibrahim Sarina before a Federal high court sitting in Kano.

Danzago, is seeking application for interlocutory order to hold down Abdullahi Abbas and Ibrahim Sarina from parading themselves as state APC Chairman and secretary.

This fresh movement came few hours after the Supreme Court decision that dismissed the G7 appeal against Governor Ganduje’s backed APC leadership in Kano.

While the legal tussle that terminated on Friday at the supreme court bordered on ward and local government congresses of the party, the new case argued on the competence of the Chairman and secretary to remain in office.

The plaintiff argued that dissimilar to the provision and rules guiding the party, Abdullahi Abba and Sarina failed to resign on their position as caretaker committee ahead of contesting the substantive position during the state congress held in 16th October, 2021.

Meanwhile, counsel to the first and second defendants Chief O. Offiong  SAN raised caution why the matter should be stood down for later date. The senior lawyer who argued to support his point told the court that his client (Abass and Sarina) have not been served with hearing notice.

 In his ruling after listened to both argument, Justice Liman adjourned the matter till Wednesday 11th, 2022 for continuation of hearing on the matter. Justice Liman also granted the plaintiff to serve the defendant with notice through a substituted means.

Danzago, who enjoyed the full support of the G7 APC members and loyalists under the leadership of Senator representing Kano central Malam Ibrahim Shekarau, participated in an organised parallel congresses at local and ward levels against the Governor Ganduje’s supported group under the leadership of Abdullahi Abbas
