Kano: We ‘re sure of victory at Supreme Court, deputy governor assures 


Kano state deputy governor, Aminu Abdussalam, has called on the people not to be agitated or restive but wait for the outcome of forthcoming Supreme Court judgement.

The deputy governor gave the assurance when he paid a visit, Saturday evening, at the Gwale local government secretariat on an assessment of the damage done by arsonists in last week’s attack.

Aminu Abdulsalam, who represented Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, promised to protect and defend the mandate at the Supreme Court. 

He urged the residents not to be agitated because of the current happenings in the country concerning the outcome of the court judgments on Kano, judging by the recent incidence of burning down parts of the Gwale local government area secretariat by miscreants.

The deputy governor, who is also the Commissioner for Local Governments and Chieftaincy Affairs, warned of the dangers of engaging in any form of violence that will disrupt the nascent peace of the state while reiterating the need for peace in the state.

He stated that their call for peace is not in fear of anybody but to ensure there is no breakdown of law and order in the state due to its importance in the region and the entire country.

“We are here on a visit because of the very unfortunate incident that occurred within the last week. I am here as the Deputy Governor representing His Excellency Abba Kabir Yusuf and as Commissioner in charge of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, for which issues relating to local governments directly fall under my purview.

 “I am therefore here to see for myself what happened and the extent of the damages caused by this unfortunate incident carried out by some miscreants.

“The importance of Kano to the entire northern Nigeria cannot be overemphasized. The importance of Kano to this part of the country and indeed the entire country is such that nobody can afford to play with security issues in the state.

“That is why we are going to the extremes to ensure that peace reigns and we can calm the nerves of our supporters in the state who are in the majority,” he said.

Gwarzo urged the people of the state to remain focused and to remain on alert while calling for vigilance on what is happening within and outside of the state and reiterated the assurance that no stone would be left unturned in the struggle for justice for the people of the state at the court.
