The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) is not happy with the way things are going in Kano State. They believe that justice has been denied and they want the world to know about it. So, they have reached out to President Bola Tinubu, world leaders, former presidents, heads of state, international organizations, and security agencies to voice their concerns.
The NNPP has taken their protest to the embassies of the European Union, ECOWAS, Canada, and others. They are worried that there are secret plans to take away the power that the people of Kano State have given to Abba Kabir Yusuf, who won the governorship election under the NNPP.
Not only did Abba Kabir Yusuf win the governorship seat, but the NNPP also won two senatorial seats, 19 Federal House of Representatives seats, and 30 state assembly seats across the country. However, the Kano State Governorship Election Tribunal and the Appeal Court overturned his victory in two separate judgments.
But here’s the twist: the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the judgment that was shared online showed that the Appeal Court’s judgment was different from what the three-man justices of the Appeal Court actually said. The circulated CTC clearly favored the NNPP.
The NNPP is not taking this lightly. They are determined to fight for what they believe is rightfully theirs. In a protest letter signed by Abba Kawu Ali, the acting national chairman of the NNPP, they said, “We will do anything within the law to claim what is rightfully ours.”
The NNPP is urging the Supreme Court to step in and restore the mandate of the people of Kano State. They believe that justice should prevail and that the will of the people should not be ignored.
The party is also concerned about the security situation in Kano State. They believe that this attempt to take away the people’s mandate is not only a threat to Kano State but also to the entire Northern Region. They want global leaders to take note of this ill-advised move and its potential consequences.
The NNPP warns that if the people’s mandate in Kano is forcefully taken away, it will have political, economic, and social consequences, not just in Nigeria but also in Africa and the rest of the world. They want justice to be served and for the people’s voice to be heard.
