Plot to remove me targeted at Kwankwaso — Kano gov

Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf has declared that the ongoing legal challenges to his tenure are not merely personal attacks but rather attempts to undermine the political legacy of his mentor, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

Addressing a stakeholders’ meeting of the Kwankwasiyya movement and other party supporters in Kano, Yusuf asserted that his political travails, including his losses at the Elections Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal, are targeted attacks against Kwankwaso.

Yusuf expressed his unwavering loyalty to Kwankwaso, stating, “We are going to continue working under his guidance and leadership to do the needful, God willing.” He emphasized his deep gratitude to Kwankwaso, acknowledging his pivotal role in shaping Kano’s political landscape.

“Even if the world says they are not going to give us anything because of his (Kwankwaso) vision, we are not going to turn our back on him and his vision,” Yusuf asserted.

In a message to his supporters, Yusuf urged them to remain steadfast and avoid engaging in divisive rhetoric. “We must not exchange bitter words with anyone but to channel our energy to motivating Kano people,” he advised.

Yusuf reaffirmed his commitment to the people of Kano, pledging to continue the people-centered projects he has initiated, including initiatives focused on women’s and children’s welfare, as well as payment of outstanding backlogs of pension and gratuity entitlements.
