Women Stage Massive Protest Against Court's Decision to Remove Gov Abba

A large assembly of women organized a protest march to the Kano State Police Command, expressing their discontent with the recent Court of Appeal decision to nullify Abba Kabir Yusuf’s election. Carrying placards and singing in support of Mr. Yusuf, the women voiced their opposition to the perceived injustice done to the people of Kano State by the appellate court.

The protest, commencing from the residence of former Governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso at Miller Road, proceeded peacefully to the Kano State Police Command Headquarters in Bompai, where they intended to deliver their letter of protest. Despite being intercepted by police officers and Nigeria Correctional Service personnel on their way to Bompai, the march continued without incident.

Wearing red veils, the women gathered at the Kano State Police Command Headquarters, urging to meet with Commissioner of Police Usaini Gumel. Their placards bore various messages, including “Our mandate must be restored,” “Injustice exposed in CTC,” and “Kano voted for Abba.”

Zuwaira Abubakar, one of the protesters, emphasized that the demonstration aimed not only to support Abba but also to advocate for the rights of Kano State. The protesters urged the world to recognize that Governor Abba was elected during the March 18 polls and expressed concern about the potential impact on the state.

In the midst of the protest, one participant appealed to the federal government to refrain from “interfering with the courts” and allow justice to prevail.
