But during the court judgement delivered on Friday at the court room in Abuja the appeal court dismissed the appeal filed by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

Other details are as follows

A certified copy of Appeal court Judgement on Kano state Governorship election has affirmed the victory of Abba Kabiru Yusuf as duly elected Governor of Kano state.

In the fresh revelation as indicated in the written judgement, the Court of Appeal, set aside the judgement of the Kano election petition tribunal for lacking in merit.

The evidence contained in page 67 of the the copy of the Appeal court judgement released on Tuesday and signed by Registar Jameel Ibrahim Umar, appellate court upheld the victory of Abba Kabiru Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party NNPP as duly elected Governor of Kano.

The three member panel of the appeal court, on Friday 17th November 2023 had dismissed the appeal filed by Governor Yusuf on the basis of his membership status.

The appellate court subsequently affirmed Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress APC as winner of March 25th, 2023 Governorship poll in Kano.

Addressing journalists Tuesday evening, Kano state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Dederi said page 67 of the certified copy of the judgement clearly indicated that the tribunal’s ruling that sacked Governor Yusuf was set aside.

Barrister Dederi insisted that contrary to what the Judges read to the public in the court room on the 17th November, the written evidence has vindicated Yusuf as legitimate Governor of Kano state.

It could be recalled that the national leadership of the NNPP has cried out yesterday over the inability of the Appeal Court to provide them with certified true copy of the judgment four days of delivery.

As a result, the court has exposed itself by providing a confusing judgement different from what was red during the delivery of the judgement last Friday in Abuja

Alhaji Gidado Mukhtar addressing the Press

Alhaji Gidado Mukhtar, representing the unity forum, addressed the press in Kano, highlighting the city’s historic significance as a commercial hub spanning centuries, despite facing challenges from colonial and post-colonial legacies.

Recent years have seen a surge in attempts to undermine Kano through the importation of dangerous drugs, posing a grave threat to its future and Northern Nigeria at large, with drug dealers operating openly in markets like Muhammad Abubakar Rimi Market, Sabongari.
Statistics from the NDLEA reveal alarming figures, with substantial quantities of psychotropic substances seized within a short span, prompting urgent action to safeguard society’s future.

The Kano State Government, disturbed by the situation, initiated the establishment of a modern pharmaceutical market within the new Kano Economic City at Dangwauro through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP), aiming to regulate and monitor unlawful activities.

Despite efforts to relocate dealers to the new market, resistance persists, with the perpetrators going to the extent of instituting legal action against directives, recently ruled against by the court.

Stakeholders emphasize the intolerability of allowing illicit drugs to pervade society, asserting a unified stance against the trade’s detrimental impact on Kano’s fabric, and vow to employ all legitimate means to halt its spread.
