The All Progressives Congress (APC), Kaduna State chapter has announced the suspension of its women’s leader for criticizing Governor Sani.

The APC has taken disciplinary action against its state women’s leader, Maryam Suleiman, citing allegations of gross misconduct.

In a suspension notice dated March 31st, signed by the APC chairman and secretary of Badarawa/Malali ward, Ali Maishago and Zakkah Bassahuwa respectively, it was stated that the women leader had been suspended over alleged actions that tarnished Governor Uba Sani’s reputation.

The suspension letter was reportedly prompted by accusations of defaming the governor’s character and engaging in unauthorized dissemination of party disputes that undermined the governor’s integrity. The letter further alleged that Suleiman had been involved in orchestrating an attack on the political adviser to the governor, Manzo Maigari, purportedly carried out by thugs.

Citing violation of Article 21, 2 (v) of the APC constitution, the party stated that Suleiman’s suspension would remain indefinite pending a thorough investigation into the allegations.

In a widely circulated video in Hausa, the APC women’s leader voiced criticism against Governor Sani’s remarks regarding the significant debt burden inherited from the former governor, Nasir El-Rufai’s administration.

During a town hall meeting with stakeholders, Governor Sani disclosed inheriting a debt totaling $587 million, #85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from the previous administration. He attributed the government’s inability to meet salary obligations to deductions from federal allocations.
In response to the governor’s remarks, Suleiman posted a video on social media accusing Governor Sani of mismanagement and advising him to refrain from attributing his failures to El-Rufai.
