KANO GUBER: Ajadi expresses concern over alleged abuse of power by APC

By Ibrahim Kegbegbe

A chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (APC), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has expressed concern over acts by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) tending towards abuse of power.

He spoke against the background of the
ongoing travails of the Kano State governor Abba Yusuf, with Ajadi asserting that the body language of the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s government indicates a determination to remove Abba Yusuf as Kano State’s governor.


Yesterday, Monday, 20, Ajadi, and the party’s South West Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kilamuwaye Badmus Bako, paid a solidarity visit to Governor Abba Yusuf in Kano.
Ajadi particularly expressed optimism of victory at the Supreme Court following setbacks in the tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

The tribunal had invalidated a significant number of Yusuf’s votes, while the Court of Appeal based its decision on his disqualification as an NNPP candidate during the election.


Ajadi expressed concern over what he sees as the abuse of power by the APC-led federal government, accusing it of undermining democratic institutions and interfering with the judiciary.

He expressed reservations on the grounds upon which the court determined NNPP membership and criticized the declaration of Nasiru Gawuna, an APC candidate, as the winner in Kano.

According to Ajadi, yhe Supreme Court would overturn the Appeal Court judgment, emphasizing that political parties have control over their affairs.


The NNPP Chieftain highlighted discrepancies in the APC’s arguments, pointing out that Yusuf’s name was on the NNPP membership register provided by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

He called for calm among the people of Kano, urging them not to be provoked by the opposition’s temporary victory.

In the midst of this political turmoil, Ajadi pledged the NNPP’s commitment to providing a credible opposition and defending democracy.

He warned against actions detrimental to the nation’s stability and unity, emphasizing the party’s determination to resist such influences.

As Kano awaits the Supreme Court’s decision, the political atmosphere remains tense, with the NNPP standing firm in its position against what it perceives as undemocratic acts by the APC government.
