by Adabanija Kamorudeen



The Yoruba community in Kano State, on Saturday, cautioned President Bola Tinubu not to interfere with the Supreme Court judgement over the reserved ruling on the Kano governorship election.

Specifically, the Yoruba Community, under the aegis of the Yoruba Northern Elders Forum, called on the Ooni of Ife, the Alaafin of Oyo, and the Oba of Lagos, as well as a former APC Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, to engage with our President not to be carried away by sentiments and allow the ruling party to lose to the opposition at the Supreme Court.

This was contained in a Communique issued by the Yoruba elders led by APC Stalwart and Convener of the Forum, Seyi Olorunsola, shortly after their meeting in Kaduna.

The Yoruba elders noted that their appeal for the President was not to interfere with the decision of the Supreme Court but to allow the wheel of justice to prevail in the case of the Kano State gubernatorial election.

They also cautioned President Tinubu against succumbing to sentiments and emotions that might compromise the will of the people of Kano State.

The elders also commended the judiciary for their bold steps in remaining steadfast to the letter and spirit of the law in the gubernatorial election judgment.

The Communique signed by Elder Durojaiye Babalola partly read, “The purpose of the meeting was to deliberate on the unfolding situation in Kano State, where the Electoral Tribunal and the Appeal Court have confirmed the victory of Dr. Nasir Gawuna, the APC candidate, in the March 18, 2023, gubernatorial elections.
