“Today’s judgement on the Kano governorship tussle further confirms the connivance of the allied forces of election robbery who are oppressors of the Nigerian democracy.” He said.

According to Dawakin Tofa, the Kwankwasiyya officials had earlier forwarded enough evidences before the Apex Court with full confidence that justice would be served.

“Considering the overwhelming evidences presented by the eminent team of experienced lawyers, one cannot imagine how these agents of tyranny and undemocratic principles joined hands to rob the good people of Kano their mandate.” He added.

“However, we have seen the worst of what they can do, so they should await the judgment of the Almighty Allah, which they cannot avoid.”
