He went on: Kano is the hotbed and beehive of politics in Nigeria.

While responding on the provisional closure of the Sani Abach Stadium, El-Jibril, said: State Government backslided on their earlier pronouncement that they would let us PDP to use the Sani Aabacha Stadium to conduct our rally for the befitting Presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar on Sunday.

” What I want to clarify that we are yet to understand the action taken by Alhaji Ibrahim Galadima, the Chairman of the Kano State Sports Commission.

“I believe the decision was taken singlehandedly If that is the case, I call upon the government to do what is legally binding on him for closing the stadium without any tangible motive.

“Secondly, if he did so on the government directives, then it is making PDP more formidable and potentially undefeatable in the forthcoming elections, hence, this action has drastically deflated the popularity of the APC in Kano.

“So, I craved the indulgence of the Kano state government to look into this crucial to finds out the negative actions that are contrary to the ideals of democracy in Nigeria”
