By Faith Awa Maji
The Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf has described his removal by the Appeal Court as miscarriage of justice.
Abba is optimistic to reclaim his victory as he set to challenge the Appeal Court verdict at the Supreme Court.
The action followed Friday’s Appeal Court verdict that upheld the Kano State governorship election tribunal judgement that sacked him.
Faith Maji’s Blog obtained the information from Governor Abba’s X official handle.
According to him “after careful study and rigorous stakeholders engagement, my team and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), have decided to approach the Supreme Court on the miscarriage of justice, delivered by the Appeal Court, yesterday in Abuja.
“We are optimistic that the Supreme Court will by the grace of Allahu SWT, will set aside these miscarriages of justice by the Tribunal and the Appeal Court, and reaffirm our mandate, as given by the good people of Kano State.
“Furthermore, I call on the good people of the Kano State to continue to go about their legitimate businesses, as we have taken all the necessary measures to ensure the security of thier lives and property as a cardinal responsibility.
This temporary set back will not deter our administration from its commitment to continue with laudable projects and programmes targeted at restoring the lost glory of the State. We are rolling-out more initiatives to deliver dividends of democracy to the citizens and residents of Kano State.
“Finally, I call on the good people of the State and other well-meaning Nigerians to continue to pray 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. – AKY”.
Appeal Court setting in Abuja Friday upheld the judgement of the lower court that declared Dr. Nasiru Gawuna of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC winner of the March 18 governorship election held in Kano.
The Appeal Court ruled that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf was not a member of the New Nigerian Peoples Party, NNPP, as of the time the elections were conducted.
