‘Miscarriage Of Justice’: Kano Gov Yusuf Rejects Sacking, Heads To Supreme Court
The Kano State governor, Abba Yusuf, has rejected the appeal court judgment affirming the verdict of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sacking him, vowing to challenge the decision at the Supreme Court.
The governor, who spoke in a broadcast, described the appeal court judgment as a miscarriage of justice.
Yusuf called on Kano State people to go about their legitimate businesses as the government had taken necessary measures to ensure the security of their lives and properties as a cardinal responsibility.
He assured that the temporary setback would not deter his administration from its commitment to continue with its laudable projects and programmes to restore the lost glory of the state.
He said he would instead roll out more initiatives to deliver dividends of democracy to citizens and residents of Kano State.
Yusuf also called on the people of the state and other well-meaning Nigerians to continue to pray for Kano for God’s mercy and protection to save the state from injustice and from mischief makers.
The Court of Appeal in Abuja nullified Yusuf’s election on Friday in a unanimous ruling by the three-man panel on the ground that he was not a valid candidate in the March 18 gubernatorial election
