According to Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, everyone can learn from the Supreme Court’s ruling regarding the dispute over the Kano State gubernatorial election.
Remember that the Supreme Court upheld Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) as the legitimately elected governor of Kano yesterday? It was the final blow in a string of legal disputes.
Meanwhile, reacting to the judgment in an interview with BBC Hausa, Kwankwaso said: “What happened at the Supreme Court is a lesson for all of us. I know that I mean well for everyone.
“Throughout the period, I have not done anything to anyone. And anybody would reap what he sows.”
“No Agreement With President Tinubu”
On allegations that he reached an agreement with President Bola Tinubu over the judgement’s outcome, Kwankwaso, who was the presidential candidate of the NNPP in the last general elections, said no.
His words: “To the best of my knowledge, I have not reached an agreement with anybody.
“All I know is that President Bola Tinubu is my contemporary. I joined politics at the same time as him in SDP.
“Then he was a senator and I was serving as the deputy speaker of the House of Representatives.
“In 1999, he was my colleague as the governor of Lagos State. We founded the APC together and we participated fully in the struggles which followed.
“People need to understand that lies don’t last long. The judges made the correct decision in spite of the schemes those people pulled off.
“There isn’t an issue. We have our party, they have theirs. When needed, we’ll collaborate. Only time will tell on the matter of joining the government, Kwankwaso continued.
