Ganduje To Appeal Court Ruling On Congress Nullification,Emir Sunusi II



Kano State Government has rejected the two court judgment against it and the All Progressive Congress faction of Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje.

 It was earlier reported that a Federal High Court in Abuja, on Tuesday, ordered Kano state government to tender an apology to the 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II , in two national dailies and pay him N10m as damages.

The court, in a judgment that was delivered by Justice Anwuli Chikere, held that Sanusi’s forceful banishment from the state after his dethronement, was illegal, unconstitutional and in gross violation of his fundamental human rights.

Similarly, an Abuja High Court on Tuesday nullified the congresses of the Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s faction of the All Progressive Congress (APC).

In his ruling, Justice Hamza Mu’azu upheld the congresses conducted by the Senator Ibrahim Shekarau-led faction of the party.

The judge ruled that the congress which returned 17,908 members was valid.

However, reacting to the court ruling on Emir Muhammadu Sanusi II , the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Barr. Musa Lawan said the state will appeal the judgment as they reject the ruling in its entirety.

The Commissioner told Solacebase that the constitution recognize tradition and custom and should be protected.

‘’We are studying the judgment and going to take the right decision, definitely we are going to appeal. But then Kano State Government would do everything possible to protect the custom and tradition of the people. Where a person that is part of the emirate decide to destroy the tradition and custom and do only things that he deemed fit will not be allowed,’’ said Musa Lawan.

‘’For over hundred years , it has been the tradition and custom in our clime that when an emir is deposed , he is banished to another community and there was nothing usual in the case of Malam Muhammadu Sanusi II, ‘’said Musa Lawan.

‘’Even for Muhammadu Sanusi going to court means that he does not respect the custom and tradition of Kano’’

On the issue of the issue of nullification of the APC congress of the Ganduje led faction, the State Attorney General said the duly recognized leadership of APC conducted ward congresses in the state and that was the only one conducted in Kano.

‘’There was no any APC congresses conducted at ward level apart from the one conducted by the recognized leadership in the state and that was the only one. So it is surprising that some people went to court and even tendered a result of  a congress that did not take place is surprising.’’

Musa Lawan added that despite the defence Counsels argument on the jurisdiction of the court in Abuja, the judge decided to rule on the matter in favour of the applicants.

CITAD Trains Remand Home Inmates In Kano




By Ozumi Abdul

Centre for information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday concluded the training of inmates in the remand home in Goron Dutse, Kano state on ICT and phone repairs.

The training which lasted for six weeks was segmented into three weeks each, with the first segment dedicated to ICT training and the other for phone repairs.

While speaking, the Deputy Director of CITAD, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said his organization has been combing the entire country in the bid to bring technological development to bear upon every area of humanity, but however discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined.

Yakasai noted that this informed the reason for his organization’s training of the underaged inmates of the remand home, because the inmates are not enjoying the benefits of ICT.

He said that CITAD finds it imperative to organise a training of such nature to build the capacities of the inmates, adding that unemployment might be the reason why they are in detention.

He exuded the confidence that with the training, the inmates would not only be self employed, but employers of other people when they are freed from detention.

“Well, as you are aware CITAD is a Centre For Information Technology And Development, we aim to use technology to bring development to the people. We have been working around the country, but we later discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined, not deriving the benefit of technology, and that is the reason we organise this training to build their capacities.

“Also we think that most of them, it might be the issue of unemployment that brought them here. So by the time they leave here, they will be able to stand on their feet and to employ others”, Yakasai said.

On her part, the representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Kano state,Hajiya Abdullahi Hafsat expressed her happiness towards the efforts of CITAD, as well as enjoining the beneficiaries to make use of the opportunity when they returned to their various homes.

Also, the officer in charge of the remand home, Mallam Musa Muhammad Tarauni commanded CITAD for their gesture, promising that the remand home will continue to partner with the organization.
