Kola Oyelere Kano
A chieftain of Hausa community in the South West geo-political zone, the Makaman Yammacin Nigeria of the six Yoruba states of the South West, Alhaji Jubrin Balarabe Madobi, has asked President Bola Tinubu not to interfere in the judicial process on the Kano state governorship election for the rule of law to prevail in the country.
It is recalled that some acclaimed Hausa community leaders had purportedly held a meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun state few days ago, calling on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to intervene on the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement on Kano governorship election.
The Makaman Yammacin, who dissociated himself from the meeting and its outcome, described it as a fraud, and a manipulation by some interested parties.
“On behalf of the Hausa communities in the six Yoruba states in Southwestern Nigeria, my attention has been drawn to a meeting held in Abeokuta, Ogun State, by some people claiming to be leaders of the Hausa communities in the Yoruba land, calling on President Bola Ahmad Tinubu to intervene on the outcome of the Supreme Court judgement on Kano governorship election.
“I, Alhaji Jubrin Balarabe, in my position as the Makaman Yammacin Nigeria of the six Yoruba states of the Southwest wish to dissociate from the meeting and its outcome. It is a fraud, and was manipulated by some interested parties.
This was contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Jubrin Balarabea a copy made available to press in Kano said”I am not even aware of the meeting and what was discussed, my attention was drawn the outcome of the meeting by concerned persons.
“I wish to call on our President Bola Ahmad Tinubu to disregard the call and threat to peace, perpetrated by the impersonators and allow justice to take its cause.
“The issue is indeed before the Supreme Court of the land and its decision is final. As a renowned democrat, Nigerians are confident that the President will never heed to any call to disrupt the path of justice.
“It is worth mentioning that there are politicians who are hell bent on formenting trouble and threatening the nascent peace being enjoyed by the people of Kano state to satisfy their personal whims and caprices. The president should beware of such politicians.
“We hereby reiterate our position as people’s leaders of the Hausa communities in the six Yoruba states, that we condemn the meeting they held. We have no hand in it, and we call on the President and Nigerians alike to stand by the law of the land and allow justice take its natural cause. Interfering with the process will be undemocratic and tantamount to contempt of court.
“We finally call on the people of Kano in particular, and Nigerians in general to remain calm and go by the decision of the Supreme Court of the on the issue of governorship of Kano state”.
