Supreme Court judgement: Gov Yusuf lauds Tinubu for refusing to interfere


Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State has described President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as a courageous leader who shunned a series of pressures to interfere in the governorship elections judgement in the Supreme Court.

Yusuf noted with great pleasure how Tinubu and his Deputy, Senator Kashim Shattima, refused to interfere in the apex court judgement despite stiff pressure from disgruntled quarters.

Governor Yusuf, who was referring to efforts by former Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to allegedly use the Presidency to influence the Supreme Court judgement in favour of his All Progressives Congress gubernatorial candidate, Yusuf Gawuna, said the insistent refusals of Tinubu and his Vice Kashim Shettima shows that Nigeria is truly in good hands.

Similarly, Yusuf extended hands of friendship to his arch-opponent, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, the APC gubernatorial candidate who lost in the Supreme Court, saying it is time to build Kano as politicking is now over.

He said now is the time for everybody, regardless of party platforms, to join hands with his administration to move Kano forward.


He said, “As a true democrat and progressive, I called on my opponents and their supporters to join hands with me in the crusade of developing our dear state Kano for the betterment of its citizens.”

“People of Kano needs leaders with vision, passion, zeal, and commitment of initiating projects, policies and programmes that have direct bearing to their lives in all facets of human endeavors, as such the APC Gubernatorial Candidate, Mallam Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, should join hands with me to make Kano proud.”

The governor, who commended the Kano people for their support, steadfastness, prayers, sacrifices and brevity in affirming what they have elected, and the Supreme Court Judges for upholding the glory of the Judiciary, also thanked God for giving him the highest support.

He also appreciated NNPP leaders at all levels particularly the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement, Sen. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, for his guidance and support during the trying period.
