Kano APC Crisis: CUPP cautions INEC against tampering with the Ganduje Ward Exco list

Justice Watch News CUPP

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) vehemently opposes any attempts by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to manipulate the authentic identities of executive ward members in Ganduje Ward, as duly recognized by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

This objection has surfaced in light of a new faction claiming to be the rightful executive members of Ganduje Ward.

During his address on Sunday, the chairman of the organization, Muhammad Abdullahi Raji, expressed concerns about signs indicating that the Kano APC is plotting to alter the list and include individuals who are not legitimate members.

As a result, he advises INEC to exercise caution and not succumb to the influence of any single political party.

He also highlighted a statement made by Yunusa Zakiri Sarina, the state secretary of the APC, wherein he alluded to the forthcoming announcement of a new executive team.

While acknowledging their membership within the party, Mr. Sarina clarified that they were not part of the executive committee and did not hold any official position within the party hierarchy.

In light of these developments, the CUPP urges against any interference with the lists under INEC’s custody, as such alterations could lead to disorder.

Furthermore, the association noted that while they have the constitutional right to modify the executive committee as they see fit, any changes made during this tumultuous period would insinuate a deliberate overhaul by the APC.

The mandate of the CUPP is to uphold orderliness in the governance policies of Nigeria without aligning with any specific political party, government, or individual interest in this matter.

“APC should respect rule of law and abide by the existing court order issued in Kano, matters of this nature should be resolved in courts”
