The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has said it is not discouraged, although the Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld a previous court ruling that upheld the election of former party leaders. Senator Ibrahim Shekarau.
Earlier, the court upheld the leadership of the Shekarau faction, which challenged that the party of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje did not conduct constituency elections.
Ganduje’s party immediately called for the trial to be adjourned because there was a gap, he said.
However, at Friday’s hearing, the Court of Appeal upheld the validity of the Shekarau faction’s decision in an appeal by the government.
This shows that the court overthrew the APC leadership of Abdullahi Abbas, the faction of Governor Ganduje.

However, the BBC contacted Kano State Commissioner for Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, who said that they were not happy with the court’s decision, but that it did not mean they were discouraged.
“If you are a full-fledged politician, it is not a matter of your courage, it is a matter of struggle,” he said.
He added, “I am convinced that since it is a matter of one house from now on there will be balance, there will be settlement and things will be fine.”
Although the commissioner said he would not rule on the next step because it was not his prerogative, he assured that “if the mother party decides to go to the Supreme Court then you can say no.” a ba. “
He said they would now wait for the national leadership of the party which has already begun to study, and when they complete the study they will contact them to hear the next step.
However, he said the main opposition parties in the APC had already started intervening to bridge the gap between the two parties.
