Aliyu Adamu Kibiya, the commissioner of land in Kano State, issued a caution to the judges overseeing the state governorship petition tribunal on Friday.
While delivering the verdict, the commissioner who spoke in Hausa in a social media video that went viral urged the judges to choose between their personal lives and their professional careers.
He spoke at a demonstration that was put on by the state’s ruling New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).
Kibiya said, “People voted for us and some people are attempting to do injustice. We want to tell the judges that we will not accept this. Any judge that is willing to deprive us of our rights will regret it. Whatever will happen, we won’t care.”
He issued a warning that, should the judges accept the bribe and issue an unfair ruling, it would lead to an even worse situation than the instability caused by Boko Haram in the North East and banditry in the North West.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the National People’s Party (NNPP) have been summoned by the commissioner of police for Kano state in response to recent protests and prayer meetings before the tribunal’s upcoming decision.
This comes after the NNPP announced prayer sessions across the state’s 44 Local Government Areas.
Recently, Rabiu Kwankwaso, the party’s leader, convened a prayer meeting to ask God to intervene in the impending judgement.
However, the prayer session turned into a protest.
