…Says A’Court Judgment Miscarriage of Justice
Kano State Governor and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Abba Kabir has decided to approach the Supreme Court, following the judgement of the Appeal Court delivered in favour of Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressive Congress (APC) on Friday.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Kano State Governor, Sanusu Bature Dawakin Tofa in a statement quoted the Governor to have revealed this on Friday night in a special broadcast made to the good people of Kano state.
He said, after careful study and rigorous stakeholders engagement, he decided to approach the Supreme Court, describing the Appeal Court judgement as a miscarriage of justice.
“I want to inform the good people of Kano and indeed well well-meaning Nigerians that based on the consensus of our stakeholders, we have instructed our lawyers to commence the process of appealing this judgement at the Supreme Court of Nigeria. We are optimistic that the Supreme Court will by the grace of Allahu SWT set aside these miscarriages of justice by the Tribunal and the Appeal Courts, and reaffirm our mandate given by the good people of Kano State.” Said the Governor.
He used the opportunity to call on the people of the state to continue to go about their legitimate businesses as the government has taken all necessary measures to ensure the security of their lives and properties in the State as a cardinal responsibility.
Alhaji Abba Kabir assured that the temporary setback will not deter his administration from its commitment to continue with laudable projects and programmes targeted at restoring the lost glory of the state. According to the Governor, instead, he will roll out more initiatives to deliver dividends of democracy to citizens and residents of Kano State.
He called on the good people of the state and other well-meaning Nigerians to continue to pray to Kano for Allah’s mercy and protection to save the state from the injustice of mischief makers who are desperately scheming to hijack power through the back door and return the state to the dark ages.
