The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate for governor in the 2019 elections in Kano State, Eng. Abba Kabir Yusuf, responded to the State Government's comment on the recent Supreme Court trial in Imo State.
Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje was recently denounced by his Information Commissioner, arguing that the scenario that led to the looting of Imo State Governor Emeka Ihedioha was totally different from the state of Kano.
Abba, in a statement by his spokesman, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, said that, as the matter is already in the Supreme Court awaiting the final verdict, they decided to reserve more comments until the court ruled on Monday.
He said: “We are law-abiding citizens and we go to court to seek redress for the injustice done to the people of Kano State, by the current Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, INEC and the police.
“We believe in all honesty that the Supreme Court will do justice to our petition, so we don't want to anticipate the outcome of the panel of judges.
“No amount of advertising can change our destiny; the power belongs to Allah, and He gives it to whomever He desires at the very moment He desires.
"We want to use this medium to appreciate all the efforts of our supporters and supporters inside and outside Kano, for their prayers and messages of goodwill in our quest to recover the stolen mandate of the good people of Kano state."
The Apex Court last week reserved the trial in the dispute for the Kano state government until Monday next week.
PDP candidate, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, is contesting the victory of APC Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in the March 9 election for the government.
Monday's trial will end the seven-month legal battle between the two candidates; although Ganduje won in the Electoral Court and the Court of Appeal.
