The Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, and the former majority leader of the House of Representatives, Al-Hassan Doguwa, met the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday in Abuja.
Also at the brief meeting were members of the National Assembly from Kano State.
Doguwa won the rerun conducted in the Doguwa/Tudun Wada federal constituency of Kano on Saturday.
He was the majority leader before the Court of Appeal nullified his victory in the 2019 general elections and ordered a fresh election.
After the brief meeting, Ganduje told journalists at a joint press briefing that they visited the national chairman to present the Certificate of Return of Doguwa to him.
He said, “This certificate is very important to us because it is a certificate that is carrying two caps. One, it is carrying the cap for him to be the member of the National Assembly and the other cap, he was the Majority Leader and now he is an applicant. By the grace of Allah, our national chairman, I hereby present you the certificate.”
Oshiomhole described Doguwa as a loyal member of the party whose contributions to debates on the floor of the House of Representatives had been of immense benefit to the APC-led administration of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
