A faction supportive of the All Progressives Congress (APC), operating under the Progressive League of Youth Voters (PLYV) banner, has expressed concern that the Kano state government is orchestrating protests to create chaos in the state’s capital on Wednesday, November 29.

This reaction follows the recent Court of Appeal decision that ousted Governor Abba Yusuf from office.

Shuaibu alleged that the motive behind the protests was to manipulate and intimidate the Supreme Court panel overseeing the Kano State governorship appeal, influencing them to overturn the Court of Appeal’s ruling in their favour.

The statement read:

“We wish to alert the general public and call on the attention of the Inspector General of Police, Director General, Department of State Services and other security agencies towards the inhuman activities of the Governor of Kano State Abba Kabir Yusuf over his electoral loss, at the Appeal Court.

“Our team in Kano State has informed us that the NNPP-led Kano State Government has concluded plans to convey thousands of rioters in the guise of its supporters from the 44 local government areas of the State into Kano Metropolis to protest against the NNPP loss at the Appeal Court.”

Shuaibu expressed disappointment in a government entrusted with protecting lives and property allegedly plotting actions that could lead to harm and destruction.

He pointed out the government’s previous actions, citing the demolition of legally owned properties valued at over two hundred billion Naira within six days of assuming office.

Calling on relevant security agencies, Shuaibu appealed for assistance in protecting the well-being of Kano residents and the citizens of Kano State.

While calling on elders and leaders of thought to call the NNPP leaders in Kano order, the statement said:

“This act of do or die politics is dangerous to peaceful co-existence and must be checkmated immediately.”
