Kano guber: Don’t interfere, NNPP tells Tinubu

The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) has urged President Bola Tinubu not to interfere in the Kano State Governorship Supreme Court case.

The NNPP Northwest National Vice Chairman, Shehu Bello Garu, stated this during the Northwest zonal special prayer organised in support of the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf Kabir’s victory at the Supreme Court.

Garu stressed that Kano residents were in support of Governor Yusuf’s victory by the Supreme Court, and attributed the recent unrest in Kano to the unfavorable judgment delivered at the appeal court. He called on the northern elders and traditional rulers to intervene in the people’s mandate in Kano State.

“People know who they voted for and are confident in the election outcome. Abba Yusuf won. We await the Supreme Court’s decision. We urge our people to remain peaceful and calm; hence, our gathering here to pray for success.

“We are also hopeful and praying to the Nigeria judiciary to save their integrity and do justice to the ongoing review of the mandate of Kano State governorship election.”

Garu led the party executives in a condolence visit to Tudun Biri community in kaduna, where the Nigerian Army mistakenly bombed over 100 worshipers.

Also, the NNPP National Organizing Secretary, Bala Yunusa Moh’d, highlighted the Supreme Court’s importance as the last hope of common citizens.

He emphasized the need to avoid external influences that might sway the verdict in favor of a candidate who clearly lost the election. Moh’d said: “We gathered to pray for the Governor of Kano State, whose case is at the Supreme Court, seeking victory in the final stage of the court proceedings. Everyone should uphold their respective positions. The judiciary, executive, and legislators, need to remain independent within their jurisdictions.”

According to him, about 500 clerics in Kaduna, who led prayers for Governor Yusuf, urged the Supreme Court to rule in his favour.

He added that the clerics emphasized that God is watching President Tinubu, drawing parallels with the history of the second republic, which faced military intervention due to high-handedness and dominating tactics of ruling political parties.
