Sanusi faults APC Yusuf’s accepting of Supreme Court ruling in Kano

The veteran economist said:

“A faithful Muslim is expected to accept the fate of whatever befalls him or her at the first instance and not when there is no way out of his condition.”

In its report, The Guardian recalled that Gawuna and the APC lost the legal battle to take over Kano’s governorship seat at the Supreme Court on Friday, January 13, after securing victory at the tribunal and Court of Appeal.

But the former governor of the CBN said Gawina was funny by describing the ruling as the will of Allah after he had failed in all he could to get the victory of the election from the right winner.

The former emir reportedly expressed happiness in the judgment of the Supreme Court, stating that he had called on the apex court to ensure that the people of Kano state get justice.

His comment reads in

“We have always been saying that since we are practising democracy and not dictatorship, it is the right of the people to elect their leaders and representatives.”
