Supreme court verdict: Crowd of NNPP supporters welcome Gov

A crowd of supporters of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Sunday welcomed Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf back to Kano.

The Governor is returning home after Friday’s judgement of the Supreme Court which affirmed his election.

The Supreme Court upheld Yusuf’s election, having set aside the verdicts of the Court of Appeal and the election petitions tribunal which earlier voided his victory in the March 18, 2023 governorship poll.

The Governor was received by the crowd at Kwanar Dangora amid singing and dancing, having passed through some major towns in the neighbouring Kaduna State, acknowledging cheers from the people there.

The Governor’s convoy is expected to drive straight to Filin Mahaha in Kano metropolis where he will address the people later in the day.

The Governor’s return to the state and the attendant jubilations are expected to climax the non-stop celebration of the Supreme Court judgement since it was announced on Friday afternoon.
