Governor Yusuf announces the formation of Kano Elders Council

Among the former governors expected to be in the Kano elders council was Rabiu Kwankwaso, governor of the state before the current APC national chairman, Ganduje.

Kwankwaso was Ganduje’s former boss before they fell apart shortly after the latter handed over the affairs of the state to him. In several instances, Ganduje and his former boss have verbally attacked each other, who are trying to claim a godfather position in the state.

While Ganduje is the face of the APC in Kano, Kwankwaso is the face of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), now the ruling party in the state, following the Supreme Court verdict.

Yusuf, who was elected on the platform of the NNPP in the March 18 governorship election, defeated the candidate of Ganduje and the APC, Nasiru Yusuf Gawune.

The governor was sacked earlier by the Kano state governorship election tribunal and the Court of Appeal, while Gawuna was declared the poll winner. However, on Friday, January 12, the Supreme Court faulted the judgments of the two lower courts and affirmed Yusuf’s victory.

Legit.ng earlier reported that the Supreme Court had reversed the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which sacked Kano state governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

Justice John Okoro of the five-member panel of the Supreme Court ruled that the appellate court was wrong to have deducted the governor’s votes.

The apex court also maintained that the issue of nomination remained an internal affair and that no political party should interfere in the affairs of the other.
