Kano PDP Guber Candidate Reacts To Court Ruling
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP), governorship candidate for Kano State, Abba Kabir-Yusuf, says he remains the party’s flag bearing despite the court rulling that nullified the PDP’s governorship primaries.
Kabir-Yusuf made this known in a statement signed by his spokesman, Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa and issued to newsmen in Kano.
He said “The court ruling on Monday does not in any way affect the candidature of Engr. Abba Kabir-Yusuf as the case is against the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, which we believe that the party has taken the most appropriate action of appeal.
“As far as we are concerned, our campaign activities will continue till Thursday night, March 8 when the deadline of campaigns will elapse as contained in the Electoral Act 2010 as amended.”
The governorship candidate has called on his teeming supporters to remain calm and continue with the electioneering campaigns to ensure victory for the party on Saturday.
