Kwankwaso asks supreme court to review Kano governorship case
Former Governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso, has asked the supreme court to review the governorship case of Kano state.
Kwankwaso made this known in a statement issued through his media aide, Ibrahim Adam
Kwankwaso appealed to the national working committee to facilitate the process of the supreme court’s review on the Kano election case.
He lamented that Kano people were “robbed of their mandate through voter disenfranchisement and manipulation of judicial processes”.
Responding, National chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus who was represented by his Deputy, Suleiman Nazif, said the party has taken Kano as the major support base in northern Nigeria and will do everything within the confines of law to protect the its interests in the state.
Nazif applauded Kwankwaso for his “tenacity” in leading the party to victory in the 2019 governorship election.
He, however, complained about the “injustice meted out” to Kano people during the rerun election and the way PDP was “sabotaged of victory”.
Nazif said, “Your Excellency, let me also use opportunity to thank you for your efforts in promoting education not only in Kano but northern Nigeria, we have seen for the first time how a private citizen who is not holding any political office supports the children of the poor to pursue the education.
“Sir I will on behalf of the party thank you for sponsoring 370 students to study masters degrees in various universities abroad.
“I similarly appreciate our amiable governorship candidate in Kano state, Engr. Abba K Yusuf for becoming the most popular candidate in Northern Nigeria. Abba Gida Gida has become a prominent brand beyond Kano state which makes us proud.”
