The New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP) on Monday faulted the cross appeal filed at the Supreme Court by the All Progressives Congress (APC), accusing Gov Abba Yusuf of submitting forged certificate and asking the court to disqualify him from holding the Kano state governorship position.
A chieftains of the party, Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi, who stated this on Monday, stressed that APC was chasing shadow in filing of alleged forged certificate matter which he said would amount to effort in futility.
The party maintained that there was the need for the APC to provide proof that the certificate submitted by the Kano state governor to the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) was forged.
“APC is shamefully pursuing another dead end in its desperate move to step down the choice of Kano people. APC is desperately chasing shadow and can hold to anything to upturn the victory the NNPP secured at the poll”, it said
NNPP added, “APC should realise that Nigeria is not a banana republic. There is no how much the party tried, it cannot succeed in upturning the victory of our great party in Kano”.
“Our members should leave APC to continue chasing shadow. Abba Yusuf will serve eight years in Kano. To us, Abba Yusuf is 4+4”.
The party stressed, “Our members should remain calm despite this provocation. We must maintain peace. We are sure of getting justice at the Supreme Court.”
