The Kogi State Secretary of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP),
Alhaji Musa Audu Dankano, has congratulated Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State on the validation of his election by the Supreme Court of Nigeria today.
This was contained in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokoja, on Friday.
Dankano said the apex court’s decision to uphold Alia’s election has brought to an end a robust process which undoubtedly contributed to strengthening democracy in the state and the country at large.
“The legal contest that ensued following the 2023 elections was fundamental in deepening our democratic values and principles.
“It is a reflection of the vibrant nature of our democracy and a demonstration of the rule of law at work.
“Now that Yusuf’s election has been affirmed, it is time for all to wish him well as he leads the Kano state,” Dankano said.
He urged the people of Kano to rally behind Yusuf and offer their support to enable him succeed.
He said that it was imperative that the people unite across party lines for the progress and development of the state.
He said that as the Secretary of NNPP in Kogi State, he was conversant with the challenges of governing a state and the fact that the occupant of the seat needed the support and cooperation of the people.
Dankano further wished Gov Yusuf good health and success.
