Immediate former governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje has expressed confidence that the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf whose election was nullified by the Appeal Court on Friday would still suffer defeat at the Supreme Court.
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, made the remark while addressing journalists at his Abuja residence in Asokoro.
DAILY REPORT NG earlier reported that the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on Friday upheld the verdict of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which earlier sacked Governor Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP and declared that the APC candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, was the true winner of the March 18 governorship election in the state.
Yusuf, while reacting to the Appeal Court verdict, expressed optimism that he would reclaim his mandate at the apex court.
But Ganduje, in his response 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.”
