Kwankwaso Vows: Kano won’t bow to state of emergency

Former Kano State governor and leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, has pledged to oppose any potential imposition of a state of emergency in Kano State.

He criticized the Federal Government for jeopardizing Kano’s security by not withdrawing heavily armed personnel stationed around the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Senator Kwankwaso responded to the current situation in Kano, where federal security agencies are purportedly supporting the deposed Emir, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Addressing attendees during the commencement of the construction of 82 kilometers of rural roads in his hometown, Madobi, Senator Kwankwaso affirmed that the people of Kano would resist any effort to undermine the legitimate authority in the state.

He said, “We have mass followership because people believe in us, we are pro-people and the NNPP administration is determined to serve them anywhere they voted for it.

“We will not fold our arms and watch enemies of the state destroy the peaceful co-existence of our dear state, as we shall do everything possible to support the governor to succeed. I am happy that he is not distracted and is focused on achieving his goals.

“There are people from Kano, enemies of the state, who also suffer mental illness and are the ones advising the Federal Government on how to take over Kano through a State of Emergency. This is the madness of the highest order that the good, peace-loving and committed people of Kano will resist.”

Speaking further Kwankwaso said, “In the build-ups to 2027, some desperate politicians are already on a mission of disruption, but we will rather prefer the two of us to lose than to allow them to crush us unnecessarily.

“We dare anybody who thinks he can victimise us politically to be rest assured that we are ready for the fight.

“We are not afraid to be out of power because we will remain politicians in or out of government, we cannot run away from our destiny, we are humans, we know what is good for us and we will pursue it vigorously.”

The national leader of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) also emphasized that the Federal Government was heeding the advice of disloyal politicians from Kano, whose actions could lead to its downfall.

He pledged that the citizens of Kano would oppose any effort by individuals or factions to diminish the governor’s constitutional duties.

“We are willing to engage in discussions, achieve peace, and reconcile, but we will not tolerate any form of coercion or political intimidation,” Kwankwaso asserted.

“We understand the dynamics of politics and possess the necessary means to defend ourselves against any threat,” he concluded.
