Tanko Yakasai, the media aide to the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, has mocked the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abba Yusuf, following the ruling of the Supreme Court.
Naija News had earlier reported that the Supreme Court affirmed the election of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
The court had dismissed the appeal and cross-appeal filed by the governorship candidate of PDP in Kano State.
Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, while delivering the judgement declared that the grounds of the two appeals brought by the appellant were dismissed for lack of merit.
Ngwuta noted that the grounds of the appeals were blanket in law, unproved and could not accommodate all infractions of the electoral process.
Yakasai while reacting to the court ruling said cases before the Supreme Court are not won by sentiments and emotions.
In his statement, he claimed that Kwankwaso deceived his followers with lies in the appeal filed before the apex court.
Yakasai on his Twitter page wrote: “The Supreme Court has unanimously dismissed the case of Abba of PDP challenging the victory of H E Umar Ganduje at the 2019 elections. It is safe to officially say that Abba is coming.”
“It took the supreme court judges 10mins after stepping into the chambers to dismiss the Kwankwasiyya case. Like I always say, it lacked merit completely. You don’t win cases in court by woeing sentiments and emotions, you win by being able to prove your case.”
“The thing that sweet me the most about Ganduje’s victory is the false hope Kwankwasiyya camp gave themselves.”
“They had nothing but cooked so many lies just to deceive their gullible followers. That false hope is what will make today’s loss very very painful.”
