Some chieftains of Kano state chapter of All Progressives Congress APC sought support of the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole to endorse reelected Hassan Doguwa, to retain his majority leadership position in the House.
The party’s delegation led by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, said this when he presented Doguwa’s certificate of return to Oshiomhole in Abuja.
It would be recalled that the Court of Appeal voided the election of Doguwa representing Tudun Wada/Doguwa Federal Constituency.
The court also called for a rerun in which he scored 66,667 votes to defeat his closest rival, Yushau Mohammed of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.
Ganduje said their visit was to present the certificate of return given to Doguwa by Independent National Electoral Commission INEC to Oshiomhole.
Responding, Oshiomhole said the leadership of the House of Representatives did not fill the position of its majority leadership position because it held Doguwa in high esteem.
