Supreme Court

By; Jabiru A. Hassan, Kano

Kano citizens are anxiously awaiting the outcome of  today’s Supreme Court judgment between Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje  of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) and Abba Kabir of  the  Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) which is the last stage of the Kano  governorship election  petition that is being challenged by the PDP candidate since  the declaration of Governor Ganduje as the winner of the 2019 governorship election.

Our correspondent who monitored how the daily  activities were going across Kano State, reports that both the APC and PDP supporters are anticipating victory from the judgment which is the final action on Kano governorship election.

Some citizens prayed that all would be well after the ruling to enable the state to  remain peaceful till 2023 when another political wind would be blown.

Furthermore, most of the supporters that had a chat with New Nigerian described today’s  judgment as a tool for democratic progress where by a  gubernatorial candidate  fulfils the mandate to file a petition claiming election malpractices to election tribunals and appeal courts which ended in Supreme Court in some cases.

Similarly, some of the politicians and current affairs commentators expressed that the Supreme Court would look upon what the tribunal and Appeal Court did and make more consultations in an orderly manner before making the last judgment.

In addition, some of the interviewees said that the  Kano governorship election was fair because already the inconclusive polls determined who is the real winner especially when the defeated party participated during the inconclusive election like what had happened in Kano State.

All commentators called on Kano citizens to  remain  calm and law abiding even after the ruling, and commended the security agencies in  Kano State  for  their role in keeping the state safer in any situation.
