Appeal Judgement: We’ll Still Beat You At Supreme Court – Ganduje Tells Yusuf

Published

on

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Ganduje says the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf who was stacked by the Appeal Court on Friday would still suffer defeat at the Supreme Court.

 

The immediate past governor of Kano State made the remark while addressing newsmen at his Abuja residence in Asokoro.

 

Recall that the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Friday upheld the verdict of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which earlier nullified the election of Governor Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP.

The court declared that the APC candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, was the true winner of the March 18 governorship election in Kano.

Delivering judgment on the appeal filed by Governor Yusuf, the three-member panel led by Justice M.A Adumeh held that the NNPP candidate was not qualified to contest the election, stating that he was not a registered member of the party as of when the election was conducted.

The governor, while reacting to the Appeal Court verdict, expressed optimism that he would reclaim his victory at the apex court.

But Ganduje, who was elated by the Appeal Court ruling, vowed that the APC candidate would still win at the Supreme Court.

He said, “I thank Allah for this important judgment. We have to thank the judiciary for providing a good administration of justice despite all the distractions that have taken place since the beginning of the case.

“There is no doubt this is a victory for democracy. It is a victory for APC and a victory for Kano State.

“This is an indication that democracy has come to stay in Nigeria.

“But in all, probably they will go to the Supreme Court which is part of democracy. There is nothing wrong for them to go to the Supreme Court. We, too, are ready to meet them in the Supreme Court. And Inshallah, we will win in the Supreme Court as well.”

I’ll Turn Ondo Into Another Lagos, Says Wale Akinterinwa Ahead Of APC Primaries

Published

Wale Akinterinwa, a governorship hopeful on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC), says he will turn Ondo into another Lagos, the country’s commercial capital, if elected governor.

 

The Ondo APC governorship primary election is scheduled for April 20 while the state-wide election will be held on November 16.

 

Speaking during his official declaration at the ruling party’s secretariat in Akure, the state capital, on Tuesday, Akinterinwa said he will make Ondo an industrialised state.

The governorship hopeful who had worked in Lagos civil service, said he would utilise the natural resources in the state to attract investments.

“We will turn Ondo into another Lagos state in terms of development because we have what it takes, in terms of coast. We must ensure that the port comes alive and that will be a game changer,” Akinterinwa said.

“But, beyond that, we also have the landmass and ought to be an agrarian state. So, we are going to take agriculture to the next level while we encourage and support the local farmers.

“We will also attract investors who will invest in agriculture so that we will be exporting finished products. We will not just be producing for the table but we will be producing for export.”

On security, Akinterinwa said his economic initiatives would get most youth employed and lead to reduction in the rate of insecurity in the state.

“For security, part of our challenges today is because today is because we have many unemployed youths. So, Amotekun founded by our late governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and other South West governors will be strengthened so that with appropriate security in place, we can have development,” he said.
