Tribunal verdict reflects wishes of Kano people – Ganduje
The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje and immediate past Governor of Kano state, has described the judgment of the Kano Governorship Election Tribunal as a true reflection of the wishes of the people.
He thanked the judiciary, APC leaders and business community in the state for their support, while also urging residents to remain peaceful.
He gave an assurance that their businesses will flourish, when Dr Nasir Yusuf Gawuna takes over the governorship of the state.
Ganduje spoke in Abuja while reacting to the judgment of the Kano State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which declared the APC candidate, Gawuna, winner of the 18 March 2023 governorship election.
Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay delivered the judgment.
The APC had challenged the declaration of Gov. Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) as the winner of the March 18 Kano State governorship election.
Ganduje, flanked by Gawuna and a former governor of the state, Sen. Kabir Gaya, urged the people of Kano State to remain peaceful.
“Today is a historic day. We thank Allah for providing an enabling environment for the judiciary to deliver fair, transparent judgment in our favour,” Ganduje said.
The APC national chairman commended Kano State residents for being patient and for their continuous prayers for Allah to grant the APC victory.
“We urged them to continue to be peaceful, to continue to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner.
“We assure the business community that our new government if we come in under our able Governor, Dr Yusuf Gawuna, businesses will flourish in Kano,” he said.
He thanked President Bola Tinubu for creating an enabling environment for the judiciary to flourish in the country and members of the press for adequate coverage and enlightening the people.
Gawuna thanked Allah for the court judgment, saying it was His doings and also thanked the judiciary for being fair.
We pray that Allah will give us the health and life to be able to deliver to the people on the right path,” he said, assuring that his government would be fair to everybody in the state.
