The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has praised the Appeal Court’s decision to uphold the victory of his party’s candidate, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna, in the Kano State governorship election.
He expressed gratitude to the judiciary for ensuring fair and transparent proceedings.
While addressing journalists at his Abuja residence on Friday, Ganduje thanked the judiciary “for providing good administration of justice despite all the distractions that took place since the beginning of case”.
Ganduje acknowledged the role of all stakeholders, including the NNPP, in upholding democracy through the legal process.
He emphasized that the court’s decision reaffirms the maturity of Nigeria’s democratic system and the importance of the judiciary as a guardian of justice.
“We have to thank the judiciary. There is no doubt this is a victory for democracy. It is a victory for APC and a victory for Kano state.
“This is an indication that democracy has come to stay in Nigeria. Democracy we can say is matured in Nigeria. We have to thank all those stakeholders even the political parties, even the NNPP that took us to the Appeal Court.
“We have to thank them because they are part of the process of democracy. There is no doubt that after the election you get to litigations. And the result is always determined by the judiciary.
“For Kano State, this victory is for all of us. We are fully aware, we know what happens during the election. A lot of malpractices and we took the issue to the tribunal. And by the grace of God, we got a fair judgement in favour of our great party., APC.
“Now, the government in power, the NNPP decided to go the Court of Appeal and this morning, the powers of God, the court of appeal affirmed the judgement of the lower court. And by so doing, our gubernatorial candidate Dr. Nasiru Gawuna is the duly elected Governor of Kano State.
“But in all, probably they will go to the Supreme Court which is part of democracy. There is nothing wrong for them to go to the Supreme Court. We too, are ready to meet them in the Supreme Court. And by God’s grace, we will win in the Supreme Court as well.
“But, we want to assure the people of Kano State that the good administration that was provided in my eight years of administration with my deputy Dr Nasiru Gawuna and now, the Governor-elect for Kano state will provide a similar not even similar, I believe he will provide a better administration. More achievements will be recorded in Kano State. Because that is what we expect,” he said.
