The All Progressives Congress (APC) said it has reviewed the Supreme Court judgement on the Kano State governorship election.
The party said it is taking steps to create a strong avenue that will unite its members and welcome new members into the party.
DAILY POST recalls that on Friday, the Supreme Court affirmed the election victory of Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf.
His earlier victory in the March 2023 poll, which had been overturned by the two lower courts, was unanimously reinstated by a panel of Justices led by Inyang Okoro.
The Supreme Court set aside the concurrent decisions of the two lower courts that had initially removed the governor from office based on allegations of irregularities during the disputed March 2023 election.
In a communiqué signed by the APC National Chairman’s Chief of Staff, Mallam Muhammad Garba, the party appreciated President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his support and dedication to Kano State and the APC family.
The party acknowledged his commitment to the progress and development of the party in the state and the country as a whole.
Mallam Muhammad Garba, speaking on behalf of the party, stated that the stakeholders’ meeting had resolved to keep the doors of the APC in Kano open for hundreds of new members willing to join.
He added that the party is actively seeking to attract new members, both at the group and individual levels, owing to the good governance and promises of the party.
Garba noted that the meeting also resolved to convene an extensive stakeholders’ meeting in Kano to strategize on how to further unite the party for enhanced development.
“The meeting also appreciated members of the party for their maturity, support, and patience during the period of the legal battle and called on them to remain calm and await the outcome of the expanded stakeholders meeting scheduled for Thursday, January 25, 2024,” he said.
Participants in the meeting included selected Kano APC stakeholders, presided over by the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.
