A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ilyasu Musa Kwankwaso, has submitted that power belongs to God, and he gives it to whoever pleases him.
Kwankwaso made the submission on Thursday while accusing the Kano State Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf of sponsoring political protests in the state following the ruling of the election petition tribunal and the Appeal Court, which sacked him from office.
The APC chieftain told Yusuf to stop wasting Kano State funds on sponsoring protests in the state and rather wait for the final decision of the Supreme Court regarding his appeal against the verdict of the court of appeal which sacked him from office.
Speaking on the political developments in Kano, Kwankwaso in a chat with newsmen on Thursday at the Kano Press Centre, called on Governor Yusuf and the NNPP to stop wasting tax payer’s money on sponsored protests in the state.
On the Kano State governorship tussle, the APC stalwart said both the judgement of the tribunal and the appeal court are in accordance with the constitutional provisions and the Electoral Act, adding that God can decide to take power from Yusuf and give it to Nasiru Gawuna of the APC if he so wishes.
He called on Governor Yusuf and the NNPP to desist from instigating political violence and confusion in Kano State, Naija News reports.
Kwankwaso stated that: “These judgements were passed in accordance with the constitutional provisions and Electoral Act as amended.
“Not happy with the judgement, the NNPP and the Kwankwasiyya Movement have engaged in massive propaganda, thereby insulting the judiciary and trying to instigate political violence in Kano.
“They have spread false claims that Kano state is facing serious tension by funding patches of protests and rallies across the metropolis.
“This is in violation of the Peace Accord that was signed at the Police Command recently part of which has banned such public assemblies.”
