KANO GUBER: Kwankwaso holds special prayer ahead of Supreme Court judgment
The leader of the Kwankwasiyya political movement, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, on Monday held a special prayer session at his Kano residence.
The special prayer was aimed at seeking God’s intervention in the much-anticipated Kano governorship dispute verdict by the Supreme Court.
The prayer organised by an Islamic group, Mu’assatul Kwankwasiyya, was led by Mallam Yahaya Sufi, Mallam Ashiru Nata’ala, Mallam Bazallahi Nasiru Kabara and Mallam Sadiq Isiyaku Rabiu.
While observing the prayers, the clerics prayed for the success of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf at the Supreme Court and for the sustenance of peace and tranquillity in the state.
The prayer session was attended by some cabinet members of the incumbent administration, other political appointees and supporters of the Kwankwasiyya movement.
The Supreme Court led by a five-member panel of justices presided by Justice Inyang Okoro on Thursday reserved the judgment after listening to lawyers in the matter.
The appeal was against the November 17th Court of Appeal judgement that affirmed the election petition tribunal’s judgement, removing Kano State governor, Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and declaring Nasiru Gawuna of the APC as the winner.
The three-member panel of the Appeal Court rejected Governor Yusuf’s appeal, citing concerns related to his party membership.
Recall however that confusion ensued on Tuesday, November 21, as the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the court judgement contained what was termed by some as inconsistencies in the conclusions.
