The call was contained in a statement by the Director Public Enlightenment, Government House Kano, Aliyu Yusuf, a copy of which was made available to PUNCH Online on Saturday.

According to Yusuf, the governor made the remark while briefing newsmen at the premises of the Supreme Court in Abuja on Friday shortly after the delivery of the judgment which reaffirmed his election as the duly elected governor of the state.

“As a true democrat and progressive, I call on my opponent and his supporters to join hands with me in the crusade of developing our dear state, Kano for the betterment of its citizens.

“People of Kano need leaders with vision, passion, zeal, and commitment of initiating projects, policies and programmes that have a direct bearing on their lives in all facets and across nooks and crannies of the state”, the governor was quoted as saying in the statement.

He commended the people of the state for their support, steadfastness, prayers, sacrifices and bravery in affirming what they have elected as well as the Supreme Court justices for upholding the glory of the judiciary.

He also appreciated NNPP leaders at all levels particularly the leader of the Kwankwasiyya movement, Sen. Rabi’u  Kwankwaso for his guidance and support during the trying period.

The governor noted with pleasure how President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shattima did not interfere in the apex court judgment despite  pressure from “disgruntled quarters.”
