Supreme Court judgement has restored hope to Kano people – NNPP


The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) National Secretary, Dipo Olayoku, has described the Supreme Court judgment affirming the election of Gov. Abba Yusuf of Kano State as the restoration of hope for the people of the state.

In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Abuja, Olayoku said the judgment was also a confirmation of the victory God gave NNPP on March 18, 2023.

“The party is just appealing to politicians to try to win elections through the ballot boxes and not through the back door.

“I think the Supreme Court has deflated that, and we want the other arms of judiciary to also stand up to the truth,” he said.

Olayoku, who is also the Deputy National Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), said that the judgment did not come to the party as a surprise, because everybody knew that NNPP won the March 18, 2023, governorship election in the state.

He said there was no way the All Progressives Congress (APC) could have claimed to have won the election in the state where the NNPP won the presidential election, won two out of three senatorial seats, and 18 out of 24 House of Assembly seats.

“In the governorship elections, we defeated APC with about 200,000 votes, in the House of Assembly of 40 seats, we have 26. So what will be the yardstick for them to win governorship?

“We thank God that the Supreme Court has restored the hope of the people,” he said.
