The Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, whose sacking by the electoral tribunal was upheld by the Court of Appeal on Friday, has vowed to reclaim his mandate at the Supreme Court.
The appeal court sitting in Abuja upheld the ruling of the tribunal that sacked Yusuf and declared Nasiru Gawuna of the All Progresives Congress the winner of the March 18 election.
In a broadcast on Friday night, Yusuf said he had instructed his legal team to challenge the appeal court’s ruling at the Supreme Court.
“We have consulted all stakeholders and resolved and decided that our lawyers should challenge the Appeal Court judgement at the Supreme Court.
“We believe and have the confidence that the Supreme Court will reclaim the mandate of the Kano people who voted for us,” he said.
He urged the people to continue to go about their lawful activities as security agents have been directed to ensure law and order prevail in the state.
