APC debunks rumors of alliance with NNPP in Kano, vows to pursue Supreme Court verdict amidst peaceful atmosphere

In a swift response to circulating rumors, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman in Kano State, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, categorically refuted claims of an agreement between the APC and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) regarding the Kano Governorship Election. In a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja, Abbas dismissed the speculation that NNPP had sought the intervention of President Bola Tinubu to sway the outcome in favor of their candidate and pave the way for a defection to the APC.


Contrary to the speculations, Abbas asserted that there had been no meeting with President Tinubu or any party leader to discuss such an arrangement. He emphasized Tinubu’s commitment to democracy, the rule of law, and the pursuit of justice, affirming that the APC would not endorse any reconciliation or arrangement that undermines these principles. Abbas clarified, “He, therefore, will not be part of any arrangement or reconciliation to subvert justice and support people who have stolen votes or breach the electoral act to emerge as leaders.”


Highlighting the party’s stance on the matter, Abbas declared that the APC was unaware of any such agreement and remained focused on advancing its case at the Supreme Court. Expressing confidence in a favorable outcome, Abbas cited the concrete and convincing evidence presented by the APC at both the Tribunal and the Appeal Court, leading to a victory that he believes will be reiterated at the Apex Court.


Addressing concerns about potential unrest following the Supreme Court verdict, Abbas reassured that Kano State was in a state of tranquility. Contrary to any expectations of tension, he stated that the people of Kano were content with recent developments stemming from the tribunal and Appeal Court rulings, eagerly anticipating the Supreme Court’s endorsement of the concurrent judgments.


“Kano is very peaceful, and the people are conducting their normal businesses despite efforts by the NNPP to provoke and incite youth to create unnecessary political crisis in the state,” Abbas affirmed. In the face of potential provocations, Abbas pledged the APC’s commitment to maintaining harmonious and peaceful relations with various ethnic groups and nationalities in the state.


Amidst the political climate, Abbas urged party supporters and Nigerians at large to disregard propaganda and provocation, emphasizing the importance of remaining calm. The Kano APC Chairman’s statements underscore the party’s determination to uphold democratic principles and pursue legal avenues to resolve electoral disputes, all while fostering a peaceful environment in the state. As the Supreme Court awaits, Kano stands as a testament to the resilience of democratic processes and the commitment to a just and peaceful resolution of political disputes.
