In a recorded broadcast to the people of the state, Friday night, Abba who was sacked by the Court of Appeal in Abuja earlier in the day, implored the people of the state to remain calm and prayerful.
In the meantime, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Nasiru Gwanna Yusuf, has described the judgement of the Appeal Court as a vindication of the truth.
In a statement, Nasiru, who has been adjudged the winner of the polls by the election petition tribunal and the Appeal Court, stressed that, “The affirmation of the truth by the appeal court will surely strengthen the democracy.”
He gave praises to Allah for his victory and commended the courts for ensuring that justice prevailed.
“Both the judgments have reaffirmed that the judiciary is the last hope of the common man” he stated.
“This is a victory for all the residents and citizens of the State, therefore I am seeking for the support of everyone irrespective of party affiliation to join hands with me and my running-mate Murtala Sule Garo in the advancement of Kano,” he stated.
