Kano: Your attempt to blackmail Supreme Court will fail- NNPP tells APC 

Must read

The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has declared that any attempt by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to blackmail Supreme Court over its judgement on the gubernatorial election in Kano state will fail.

NNPP said that its attention has been drawn to the unwholesome activities of APC in Kano state ahead of the Supreme Court judgement in the appeal filed by the NNPP and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

The party made these declarations in a statement issued on Thursday.

Acting National Chairman of NNPP, Abba Kawu Ali, in the statement said reports from Kano state show that leaders of APC in the state have been distributing souvenirs like clothes, T- shirts among others which according to them is in anticipation of their “victory” at the apex court.

He maintained that all attempts by APC in the state to blackmail the Supreme Court will fail.

Ali while speaking, added that the party has unflinching confidence in the ability of Supreme Court to dispense justice.

He called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to call APC leaders in Kano state to order.

He maintained that desperation of the APC leaders in Kano state has reached a crescendo.

He spoke further by saying that if not checked could plunge the state.

Ali said, “Without doubt, this action by the APC is tantamount to harassment and blackmail of the judiciary. And this act should be roundly condemned by all lovers of democracy and the rule of law.

“It is the view of the NNPP that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the leader of the APC in Nigeria should call his party leaders in Kano state to order.

“As a matter of fact, the desperation of the APC leaders in Kano state has reached a crescendo and if not checked could plunge the state, Northern Nigeria and the entire country into a crisis of monumental proportion.

“It is very visible, even to the blind, that the APC was roundly defeated by the NNPP in Kano state in the last general elections and that the APC was only trying to get through the back door what it failed to get through the ballot box. The facts are there for all to see. It is on record that NNPP trounced the APC in all the five elections conducted in Kano state in the 2023 general elections. So why are they so particular about the governorship seat?

“We are using this medium to reiterate our unflinching confidence in the ability of the Supreme Court to dispense justice. All the issues before the Supreme Court are matters that have at various times been decided in favour of the NNPP position. So, why is the APC heating up the polity”.
