As reported by Leadership, Kwankwaso said:

“It would be another mission impossible for him to drag the case to Supreme Court going by the available evidence that nailed him at both Tribunal and the Appeal Court, respectively, hence, the need for him to go and rest till 2027.”

In his response to the Court of Appeal’s decision on the disputed Kano State governorship election, Kwankwaso praised the victory of the APC governorship candidate, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, considering it a success for democracy and the rule of law.

Kwankwaso disappointed in Governor Yusuf

Kwankwaso expressed disappointment that Governor Yusuf did not accept the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal ruling and instead opted to exhaust the state’s limited resources in pursuing the case at the Appeal Court.

With the Appeal Court also nullifying his electoral win, Kwankwaso suggested that Governor Yusuf should now focus on preparing for a re-contest in 2027 under a viable political party.

He said:

“As a brother, I am using this medium to advise him to shelve any move to drag his defeat to the Supreme Court. He should just accept that this is not the time for him to be the governor of the state.”
