The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) says its candidate, Abba K. Yusuf, is the rightful winner of the Kano state governorship election, stressing that any declaration that does not reflect such cannot stand.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan alerts the whole world that the PDP and its candidate, Abba Yusuf, won the Kano state governorship election since March 9, 2019, having fulfilled the constitutional requirement of securing the highest number of votes and the statutory 25% in two-third of the state.
The party alleges that the so-called governorship supplementary election in Kano is a national disgrace and a mere figure allocating exercise by INEC officials, who collaborated with power drunk politicians in the All Progressives Congress (APC) to award results to the APC candidate.
The party therefore cautions INEC against any attempt to import contrived figures from the illegitimate March 23 charade as such will be a clear recipe for anarchy and serious crisis in the state.
According to PDP, the people of Kano state have a long history of firm resistance against corrupt and oppressive forces, saying that their will must not be over stretched.
The party says that Kano people have abundantly expressed their rejection of the corrupt and incompetent government of Abdullahi Ganduje and his party, the APC insisting that no amount of machination can cow or force them to abandon their resolve for a new governor in Abba Yusuf.
