The All Progressive Congress APC has Called on members of New Nigeria Peoples Party to shun any form of protest and await the supreme court judgement .
A stalwart in the APC Kano and former commissioner for Rural and Community Development Dr Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso.diaclosed this while briefing journalist in Kano.
‘We are all aware that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been declared winner of the March 18th 2023 Governorship Election by the Elections Petitions Tribunal and Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna announced as the duly elected Governor of Kano state.
“The same judgement is reaffirmed by the Appeal Court in addition to the judgement declaring Abba Kabir Yusuf as not being a member of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) when he contested for Governorship of the state.”
He said being Not happy with the judgement, the NNPP and the Kwankwasiyya Movement have engaged in massive propaganda thereby insulting the judiciary and trying to instigate political violence in Kano.
“They have spread false claims that Kano state is facing serious tension by funding patches of protests and rallies across the metropolis.
This is in violation of the Peace Accord that was signed at the Police Command recently part of which has banned such public assemblies.”
Kwankwaso maintained that Kano.is enjoying peace and tranquility ,and everyone is going about his legitimate business,stressing that rumours being spread that their is tension in Kano is baseless and untrue.
“In the meantime, the NNPP is wasting Kano meager resources chasing shadows by taking political issues of the country that are rooted in the Nigerian Laws to ECOWAS, EU, US and other places instead of waiting for the decision of the Supreme Court of the land”
“The worse part of this is that the NNPP is not allowing the teeming masses to rest again, after demolishing their billions of Naira worth of property illegally, they are now sponsoring innocent youths to cause tension and chaos in the state.””
“The Kano people cannot be cajoled using sponsored protests because they believe that it is Allah that gives power to whom He wishes and takes it from whom He wishes, and if He takes it from Abba Kabir Yusuf and gives it to Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, so be it.””
Dr Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso Added that these protests are stage managed and deliberately intended to create tension in the state and make it look like all is not well.
