Kano State Government Blasts Kwankwaso, For Demanding A Supreme Court Review Of Ganduje’s Victory

The Kano Government, has said that Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former Governor of the State, is “ignorant of judicial procedure”, for asking the Supreme Court to review its verdict which affirmed Abdullahi Ganduje as the Governor of the State.

The Supreme Court in a decision delivered on January 20, dismissed the appeal filed by Abba Kabir Yusuf, the Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 election, who claimed that the election was marred by irregularities.

Kwankwaso on Wednesday, led some members of the PDP from the State, to the National Secretariat of the party, asking the Leadership to support the call for a review of the Kano Governorship election case.

Responding to the move, Muhammad Garba, the Kano State Commissioner for Information, in a statement, said: “Kwankwaso’s call is a clear testimony of his total obliviousness on the jurisdictional procedures that affirmed Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as elected Governor.”

Garba stated that the former Governor has no grounds to call for a review, because the PDP suffered a ”glaring defeat” at the Apex Court.

“What the Supreme Court ruled was the affirmation of the judgement of the Tribunal and Court of Appeal. That is to say, the PDP failed woefully to prove their case, and that is the substance of the case. Therefore, there is no basis whatsoever for a review of the Kano case’’, he said.

The Commissioner stated that Kwankwaso is driven by the recent applications for the review of the Supreme Court judgments on Imo and Bayelsa States Governorship cases, which he said cannot be compared with that of Kano.

He added that the Apex Court would not overturn its decision.
