Debt: Kaduna APC Women Leader Suspended For Criticising Sani

Elishabawa 2 months ago 0 9

The suspension of Hajiya Maryam Suleiman, the Kaduna State women leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), underscores the deepening rift within the party over governance issues in the state.

Hajiya Maryam’s suspension came shortly after she publicly challenged Governor Uba Sani over his handling of the state’s debt profile and urged him to either resign or stop blaming his predecessor, Governor El-Rufai, for the financial challenges facing the state.

Her suspension highlights the growing tension within the party, particularly between supporters of Governor Uba Sani and those aligned with Governor El-Rufai. The decision to suspend her for “defamation of the character of the governor” indicates the high stakes involved in the internal power struggle within the party.

Furthermore, the call by Salihu Mohammed Lukman, a former National Vice Chairman (North West) of the APC, for the National Working Committee (NWC) and other top leaders of the party to intervene in the crisis reflects the seriousness of the situation. Lukman’s plea underscores the need for party unity and cohesion to prevent the escalation of the conflict, which could undermine the APC’s prospects in Kaduna State and beyond.

The underlying issues of governance, debt management, and political maneuvering in Kaduna State serve as a reminder of the complex challenges facing political parties in Nigeria. The inability to resolve internal disputes and present a unified front could weaken the party’s ability to govern effectively and maintain public trust.

Ultimately, the resolution of the crisis in Kaduna State will require constructive dialogue, compromise, and leadership from both within the party and at the national level. Failure to address the underlying grievances could further exacerbate tensions and undermine the party’s credibility and electoral prospects.
