Kano: APC says it has no deal to compromise court judgment for Yusuf, NNPC

Agency Report
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it has no agreement with either Gov. Abba Yusuf or the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), his party to compromise the anticipated Supreme Court Judgement in favour of Kano State governor.
Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, the chapter’s chairman said this in a statement while reacting to insinuations that the APC had agreed with the NNPP to compromise the anticipated Supreme Court judgement on the state’s governorship election.
He also said that President Bola Tinubu did not hold meeting or intervene in the matter in favour of the NNPP candidate to remain as governor and subsequently decamp to the APC as was being insinuated.
Both the Election Petitions Tribunal and Appeal Court had ruled against  Gov. Yusuf, declaring the APC candidate as the authentic winner of the last Kano State governorship election.
Abbas dismissed the speculation of the alleged agreement and reconciliation between the NNPP and the APC, saying it was a mere rumours.
He noted that since the NNPP started circulating the rumours, its gullible members were excited and had continued to dish out lies to make the party’s supporters continue to remain hopeful in the face of the prevailing disenfranchisement.
“The rumours had it that the NNPP has reached out to President Tinubu to intervene in the matter in favour of the NNPP candidate to remain as governor and subsequently decamp to the APC.
“There is no where such meeting was held with either the president or any leader of the party. President Tinubu is a democrat and strongly believes in the rule of law and the right thing to be done.
“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,” Abbas said.
He added that the APC as a party, was not aware of such arrangement and would instead intensify efforts to pursue its case at the Supreme Court to a logical conclusion.
Abbas expressed confidence that the APC would emerge victorious at the Apex Court, especially because of the concrete and convincing evidence it presented at both the Tribunal and the Appeal Court which ultimately lead to its victory.
On the possibility of a crisis breaking out in the state as a result of the Supreme Court Judgement, Abbas said there was no tension in Kano.
He maintained that the people of the state were happy with the recent developments emanating from the judgement of both the Tribunal and Appeal Court and therefore anxiously waiting for the Apex Court to endorse the two concurrent rulings.
“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,” he said.
He assured that the party would ensure harmonious and peaceful relationship with ethic groups and nationalities in the state no matter the provocation by the NNPP.
The APC Kano State chapter chairman urged the party’s members and Nigerians generally to ignore propaganda, provocation and remain calm.(https:newsatlarge.ng)
