Don’t Drag Kano Election Petition Tribunals into Your Usual Acts of Disreputable Conducts – APC Warns the Outgoing Kwankwassiya NNPP Government ..

By Our Reporter, Kano.

The All-Progressives Congress (APC) has warned the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and Kwankwassiya Group led government in Kano state against dragging the name of the chairman of the National and State Assembly Election Petition Tribunal, Hon. Justice Flora Ngozi Azinge to disrepute because of its apparent dismal defence performance at the tribunal.

APC in a statement said the deliberate attempt by the Kano state government to malign the tribunal chairman for fear of what could be possibly the final judgment, by creating a fictitious story and quoting her out of context, amounts to disrespect for the judge and the judiciary in general.

A statement issued to newsmen in Kano by the immediate past commissioner for Information and Internal Affairs and spokesperson for Gawuna/Garo Campaign Council, Malam Muhammad Garba stated that when Hon. Justice Flora Azinge made the revelation on the alleged attempt to bribe a member of the tribunal by a senior lawyer, she never mentioned any particular party, but just to denigrate the APC, the NNPP government referred to the APC as the bribe giver.

He further stated that the Kano state government is also in its usual manner pre-empting the possible unraveling of the actual bribe giver by the tribunal and therefore intend to malign the judge.

Garba also said that the made-up story, which is contained in a statement issued by the state commissioner for Information, Baba Halilu Dantiye, further indicated that the government is trying to vilify the tribunal before the judgment in order to use disingenuous ways from their playbook to spread disinformation and propaganda in order to attract undeserved public sympathy from non discerning and unsuspecting members of the public in case they suffer defeat at the EPT’s

The former commissioner for information also pointed out that to further confirm how perplexed they are, they filed an appeal while the tribunal is still holding its proceedings, saying however that their action will not stop the election petition tribunal from going on with it’s sittings until it delivers its final judgment.

He stated that even with an apparent sign of victory on its side, the APC has not and will never offer any bribe to anyone involved in the case considering that it has presented facts and figures to prosecute the matter before the tribunal.

Garba observed that while the APC had presented all its witnesses during the proceedings of the tribunal who have been successfully cross-examined, the NNPP government, he added, has failed to present any tangible witness to depend its case.

The former commissioner averred that the action of the Kano state government was nothing but gimmickry and an attempt to also desparage the APC which would no longer be tolerated nor allowed to prevail.

While reaffirming it’s commitment to patiently continue seeking legal redress in all the cases it has before the tribunals, the APC, he said, is confident it will eventually reclaim its stolen mandate.
