Kano Guber: Residents defy curfew, storm streets to celebrate Abba Kabir Yusuf [VIDEO]
Despite the dawn-to-dusk curfew in Kano State, residents on Monday stormed the street to celebrate the governor-elect, Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP.
DAILY POST reports that before the announcement of the NNPP candidate as the winner of the Saturday, March 18 gubernatorial election, the state government imposed a curfew to avoid the breakdown of law and order that may follow the announcement.
But the residents, who were excited about the expected change in government, ignored the curfew and took to the streets to celebrate the election’s outcome.
According to INEC, Kabir Yusuf polled 1,019,602 votes to defeat his closest rival, Nasir Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who garnered 890,705 votes.
