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
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
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.
