Kano Tribunal: Ganduje’s ex-aide, Yakasai reveals why Abba Yusuf lost to APC

Salihu Tanko Yakasai, a former media aide to ex-Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has claimed Abba Yusuf lost at the election tribunal because of the “reckless and indiscriminate demolition” he ordered in the state.

According to him, that action erased the goodwill he enjoyed with the people.

“The day Abba Kabir Yusuf began that reckless and indiscriminate demolition was the day he lost Kano.

“The one thing they had going into the elections was the support of Kano metropolitan area, that demolition erased that goodwill completely, and that’s the day he lost Kano,” Yakasai tweeted.

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Kano on Wednesday, declared Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress, APC, winner of the Kano governorship election.

The tribunal gave the final judgement after cancelling some votes recorded by the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) candidate, Yusuf.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Oluyemi Akintan Osadabey, said the margin of votes scored by the NNPP was not enough to give Governor Yusuf victory.
