Kano: ‘So Be It’ – Kwankwaso Makes Daring Statement Over Yusuf Losing Power To Gawuna

Ilyasu Musa Kwankwaso, a prominent member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has acknowledged that power is vested in God and that he distributes it to whomever pleases him.

In his submission, Kwankwaso accused Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of inciting political demonstrations in the state in response to the Appeal Court’s and the Election Petition Tribunal’s decisions to remove him from office. This accusation was made on Thursday.

The APC leader advised Yusuf to hold off on using Kano State funds to support protests until the Supreme Court made a final ruling on his appeal against the appeals court’s order to remove him from office.

In an interview with reporters on Thursday at the Kano Press Centre, Kwankwaso discussed the political happenings in Kano and urged Governor Yusuf and the NNPP to cease squandering public funds on state-sponsored rallies.

Regarding the battle for the governorship of Kano State, the APC mainstay declared that the rulings of the tribunal and the appellate court are compliant with the electoral act and the constitution. He also stated that God has the authority to remove Yusuf from office and transfer it to the APC’s Nasiru Gawuna.

He called on Governor Yusuf and the NNPP to desist from instigating political violence and confusion in Kano State.

Kwankwaso stated that: “These judgements were passed in accordance with the constitutional provisions and Electoral Act as amended.

“Not happy with the judgement, the NNPP and the Kwankwasiyya Movement have engaged in massive propaganda, thereby insulting the judiciary and trying to instigate political violence in Kano.

“They have spread false claims that Kano state is facing serious tension by funding patches of protests and rallies across the metropolis.

“This is in violation of the Peace Accord that was signed at the Police Command recently part of which has banned such public assemblies.”

He added that, “The peace and tranquillity enjoyed in Kano, with everyone going about their daily business, is a testament that it is not true that there is any tension in the state. It is the sponsored protests that are used to falsely create a picture of crises in the state.

“In the meantime, the NNPP is wasting Kano’s meagre resources, chasing shadows by taking political issues that are rooted in the Nigerian Laws to ECOWAS, EU, US and other places instead of waiting for the decision of the Supreme Court of the land.

“The worst part of this is that the NNPP is not allowing the teeming masses to rest again, after demolishing their billions of Naira worth of property illegally, they are now sponsoring innocent youths to cause tension and chaos in the state.

“The Kano people cannot be cajoled using sponsored protests because they believe that it is Allah that gives power to whom He wishes and takes it from whom He wishes, and if He takes it from Abba Kabir Yusuf and gives it to Nasiru Yusu Gawuna, so be it.

” These protests are stage-managed and deliberately intended to create tension in the state and make it look like all is not well.

“The people of Kano are with APC and with Gawuna and Ganduje. We won the election and the court detected the invalid votes they mischievously placed during the polls and cancelled them and our was returned to us.

“All the protests they are staging are fake and with the deliberate intention of heating the polity and creating undue tension where there is none.

“Everyone is going about his daily business except those paid crowds trying to create tension. After all, who will come out to protest because the court has sacked Abba, after demolishing their property?

“This is just a sign that the end has come for them, that is why they are all over the place trying to create unnecessary tension.

“I would like to use this forum to extend our gratitude to the people of Kano state for their support and patience. I call on all and sundry to be calm and law-abiding as we await the judgement of the Supreme Court which we believe Insha Allah will be in our favour.”
