Following the Court of Appeal upholding the removal of Abba Yusuf as Kano state governor, the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, expressed optimism about the party’s success at the Supreme Court.
Ganduje, applauding the appellate court for delivering justice, confidently stated that the APC is prepared to face the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) again in the apex court.
Addressing the media in Abuja on Friday, Ganduje acknowledged the democratic right of NNPP to pursue legal avenues, saying, “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.”
The APC national chairman also commended the judiciary for its impartiality, praising the victories of the party’s gubernatorial candidates in Kano and Zamfara states.
In a statement, APC’s national publicity secretary, Felix Mokar, underscored the judiciary’s independence, emphasizing its role as the bastion of hope for justice in democracy.
Mokar urged the judiciary to remain resilient against any attempts at blackmail or intimidation by self-serving political interests.
