POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that two days ago, a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Maitama voided the ward congresses conducted by the faction of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Justice Hamzat Muazu subsequently declared that the congress conducted by the faction led by former Governor Shekarau and lawmaker, Sha’aban Sharadaas, is the authentic exercise, effectively handing over the structure of the APC in Kano State to Shekarau and Sharadaas.

Recall that the Kano APC under the leadership of Ganduje had on July 31, 2021, returned all its candidates unopposed across the 44 local councils, unanimously electing the 13,068 ward executive members across the 484 wards.

Rejecting the option of consensus, a member representing Sharadaas, lamented that the process had excluded some party loyalists.

Sharadaas, Chairman, House Committee on Security and Intelligence, alleged that the party had denied members willing to contest in the ward congress opportunity to do so.

He subsequently teamed up with Shekarau to conduct a parallel congress and submitted its report to the APC leadership in Abuja.

Amid the controversy, the faction loyal to Sharadaas and Shekarau approached an FCT High Court to challenge the authenticity of Ganduje’s exercise – which they were successful on.

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday adjourned the trial of the detained leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu till January 18, 2022.

POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Kanu’s case was originally scheduled to be heard next year, but the court on Wednesday granted an abridgement of time after a motion was filed by the Nigerian separatist leader. This allowed for an emergency hearing today, Thursday.

Justice Nyako had on November 10, 2021, adjourned the trial of Kanu till January 19 and 20, 2022, for trial. But the court yesterday granted an abridgement of time after a motion was filed in that respect and his matter was again heard today (Thursday).

Kanu was absent in court.

One of his lawyers, Aloy Ejimakor, told journalists that part of the things that was heard is the application for his bail, among others. Ejimakor also said it is not mandatory for Kanu to be in court for the bail application hearing.

Earlier, there were expectations that the IPOB leader would be making an unscheduled appearance in court today.

There was little presence of security operatives, which is unusual with Kanu’s court appearances.

Nnamdi Kanu is facing charges bordering on alleged terrorism and treasonable felony.
