Following Abba Yusuf’s dismissal as Kano State governor, socio-political activist Reno Omokri declared that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s reelection in 2027 is now certain.
The Appeal Court decided that Kano State Governor Abba Yusuf was not a member of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) at the time the elections were held, as previously reported by Anaedoonline.ng on Friday.
Although Yusuf won the election on the NNPP platform, the court maintained the decision made by the governorship election tribunal, which concluded that the governor lacked the necessary qualifications to run for office.
The judges went on to say that Governor Yusuf, the appellant, should not have been disqualified by the tribunal.
Omokri wrote: “The sacking of Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano by the Court of Appeals has made Bola Tinubu’s re-election in 2027 more certain.
“Why? Because Kano has the highest registered voters of any state and will give at least two million votes to presidential candidates in 2027. Sadly, whoever is governor tends to direct where those votes go.
“If the NNPP and Labour Party know what is good for them, they should merge with the PDP, as Waziri Atiku suggested. Because if they do not merge, then Tinubu will re-emerge. It is just common sense. Although common sense is not so common in Nigerian politics!”
