Kano State Deputy Governor and APC Gubernatorial Candidate in the recent governorship election, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, has congratulated the candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Abba Kabir Yusuf for his victory at the poll.

“I am congratulating him and I pray for him for Allah’s guidance in his administration. Initially, we have prayed to Allah to choose what is best for us, because he is the Almighty, who gives power to whom he wishes.

“Even though our party has written a petition to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to review the election due to some irregularities, today, it has issued the pronounced winner with a certificate of return. I have taken it in good faith.

“I am thanking President Muhammadu Buhari for coming out to seek the support of the Kano electorate to vote for me. To the President-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President-elect, Senator Kashim Shettima and my leader, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, thank you for your immeasurable contribution.

“I am therefore expressing my appreciation to the Kano people and the APC supporters for casting their votes to us. Thank you for your unwavering support.”

I am commending All members of our campaign council, party exco and stalwarts for their dedication, loyalty and commitment. My gratitude goes to my family, friends and associates for standing with me all through the electioneering process,” he said, calling on Kano people and APC supporters to continue to be law abiding.
