Five jailed for ATM card fraud in Kano

Aminu Abdullahi

An amalgamation of dozens of groups under the platform of Groups For Democracy, wrote a letter to the governor of Kano state, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje urging him to call Alhassan Ado Doguwa, member representing Tudunwada/Doguwa federal constituency, to order, as his (Doguwa) political behaviours are allegedly becoming something else.

Kano Focus reports that Abba Anwar, the spokesperson of Ganduje announced this in a statement on Tuesday.

They jointly argued that, “His Excellency should kindly call this man to order, else he will ditch the honourable position attached to his representation. And that could not be good for the party in his constituency, Tudunwada and Doguwa.”

The letter reads, “Your Excellency Sir this is not the type of person we need as a Speaker of the House of Representatives, in the next coming Assembly.”

They also worried that, “What transpired at the Deputy Governor’s residence, started by Hon Doguwa is nothing but disrespectful to our Governor’s choice of gubernatorial candidate and his running mate.”

While urging the governor to kindly call Doguwa to order, the amalgamation of groups requested the governor, to beg, on their (groups) behalf, the Deputy Governor, who is the gubernatorial candidate, his running mate and other dignitaries who were present at the Deputy Governor’s residence when Doguwa did what he did, to kindly forgive the situation.

“Not only at Deputy Governor’s residence, Doguwa did other things that are unbecoming of a political leader in some other places, recently and sometimes in the past,” the letter reads.

The letter rhetorically asked, “Must Doguwa go to a meeting he was not hitherto invited at the Deputy Governor’s residence and wrecked havoc.

Earlier on Monday, the Daily Nigerian Newspaper has reported how a high-level meeting of the APC, in Kano turned bloody as Doguwa attacked the deputy governorship candidate of the party, Murtala Garo.

The meeting, held at the residence of the Deputy Governor Nasir Gawuna, was organised to review the successes and failures recorded during the visit of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.

The Newspaper reported that the incident occured when Mr Doguwa, who was not invited to the meeting, went to see the chairman of the party, Abdullahi Abbas.

Upon arrival at the venue, Mr Doguwa began complaining that he was sidelined by the party leaders on matters pertaining to funds, but only invited to execute difficult party assignments.

“Alhassan Doguwa first engaged the deputy governor in a verbal attack before turning to Murtala Garo. He complained that Murtala ordered his boys to cover his picture on the party’s banners during Tinubu’s visit, while in reality Murtala had no hand in that,” a source said.
“At that moment, Murtala attempted to call him to order, rebuked him for his unruly behaviour and reminded him about how he abused his (Murtala’s) parents the previous night during a meeting in his (Doguwa’s) residence at Kwankwasiyya City.”
Infuriated by Mr Garo’s challenge, Mr Doguwa grabbed the deputy governor’s tea cup and threw it at Mr Garo.
Iin an attempt to deflect the attack with his hand, the shards of broken glass cup hit Mr Garo on his hand and injured him.
However, the meeting ended after the incident, with the deputy governor warning Mr Doguwa to stay clear of his house.
Prior to the Monday incident, The Newspaper gathered that Mr Doguwa had allegedly poured invective on the state commissioner for Information, Mohammed Garba, for not putting his name on the schedule of speakers during Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s recent book launch in Abuja.
It added that during Mr Tinubu’s visit to Kano, Mr Doguwa had also thrown a folded babbarriga gown on the face of the chairman of the APC caucus in the House of Reps, Ali Wudil, for not having his (Doguwa’s) portrait on the gown.
