By Khadija Aliyu

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in Kano State has petitioned the state Police Commissioner, DSS and other security agencies,accusing a former chairman of the party Alhaji Shehu Wada Sagagi, of impersonation.

In an emergency press conference held in Kano, the Secretary of the Kano PDP caretaker committee, Alhaji Baba Lawal Aliyu explained that, an Appeal Court judgment had set aside the Sagagi- led executives, thereby returning the party to it’s status quo, before an earlier Federal High Court judgment that put them in place.

He highlighted that, following the judgment of the Appeal Court, the Sagagi- led faction further appealed the matter at the Supreme Court, and the case was adjourned to November 20th, 2023 insisting that the party leadership in the state is no more under him.

Alhaji Baba made references to incidences where Sagagi had addressed himself as the Kano Chairman of the PDP, including live programs on national television thereby violating the order of the Appeal Court.

“The position of things as it stands today is that the judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja which recognized the Shehu Wada Sagagi- led executive has been set aside by the Court of Appeal, Abuja, which means that he is no longer the substantive Chairman of the PDP in Kano State”

The PDP caretaker executives recalled that, Alhaji Wada Sagagi appeared at Kano State Police Command organized event, on peaceful democratic process and the signing of a peace accord for Kano State party Chairmen and gubernatorial candidates.

The party said that, in the aftermath of the events, the members of party in the state had been gravely angered by his actions, while urging the security agencies to arrest the situation before it undermines the peace of the state.

“He held out himself as the Chairman of the PDP in Kano State at that event despite knowing that the only judgment of court that recognized him as such has been set aside by the Court of Appeal, Abuja”
