Supporters of All Progressives Congress (APC) have trooped into Kano streets after the Kano State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has declared Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the APC as winner of the 2023 gubernatorial election early Wednesday evening.
The APC loyalists in some areas located within the state metropolis began to celebrate their party’s victory a few minutes after the declaration.
However, there has been a serious panic within the state after the declaration, sources revealed that the panic was as a result of the fear of the unknown. It was observed that many businesses have closed down as residents were seen closing their shops and hurriedly went back home.
It was reported that shops at areas like the GSM Market at the Farm Centre and other business places were spotted closing their shops. Unconfirmed reports have revealed that tension has been so high within the city after the tribunal judgement.
It can be recalled that the tribunal had earlier today ordered the withdrawal of the certificate of return issued to Govenor Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and directed that the certificate be issued to Dr. Gawuna of the APC.
