Abba vs Gawuna: Anticipation Mounts as Court Verdict Looms



By Adamu Aminu.

In the political arena of Kano State, a fierce contest has been playing out between Abba Kabir Yusif of the NNPP (New Nigeria’s People’s Party) and Nasiru Yusif Gawuna of the APC (All Progressives Congress).

As the appeals court prepares to announce its verdict tomorrow, November 17, 2023, the entire state holds its breath, awaiting the resolution of this high-stakes court’s battle.

The Kano political elephants—Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, the former presidential aspirant of the NNPP and the supreme leader of Kwankwasiyya red-cap ideologists, Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwasiyya, and the APC National Chairman and former Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje—had chest beats to prove to the world that each is more than a political paperweight but a heavy beffitting scale.

The political rivalry between Abba Kabir Yusif and Nasiru Yusif Gawuna has been a prominent feature in Kano’s political landscape.

From spirited campaigns to legal challenges, the journey to the appeal court has been marked by intensity and closely watched by citizens and political observers alike.

Both sides have presented compelling arguments in the appeals court, raising issues that range from electoral irregularities to constitutional considerations.

The legal proceedings have become a crucial battleground where the fate of the election hangs in the balance.

Abba Kabir Yusif, representing the NNPP, remains steadfast in his pursuit of justice. His legal team has emphasised the importance of upholding the democratic process and ensuring that the voices of the people are accurately reflected in the final judgement.

On the other side, Nasiru Yusif Gawuna, the APC candidate, has defended the integrity of the election results and highlighted what his team contends is a clear mandate from the voters.

The legal team asserts that any discrepancies do not warrant a reversal of the election outcome.

The people of Kano, deeply invested in the outcome of this legal battle, are divided in their support. As the appeal court’s decision draws near, anticipation is palpable across the state, with citizens expressing a mix of anxiety, hope, and scepticism.

The verdict from the appeals court will not only determine the fate of Abba Kabir Yusif and Nasiru Yusif Gawuna but will also have broader implications for the political landscape in Kano State. The aftermath of the decision will likely shape the narrative leading up to future elections.

As the court prepares to deliver its verdict tomorrow, Friday, the spotlight intensifies on Kano State. The question remains: who will be the last man standing after the court’s decision?

The answer holds the key to the political future of both Abba Kabir Yusif and Nasiru Yusif Gawuna, setting the stage for what comes next in this compelling chapter of Kano’s political saga.
