The former Emir of Kano State, Mohammad Sanusi II, expressed that it is too late for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last general elections in the state, Dr Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, and other APC leaders, to concede defeat. Sanusi conveyed this message in a viral video during a lesson session about accepting destiny,Daily Trust report.
The APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, supported Gawuna to assume governance in the state after the tribunal and Appeal courts ousted Governor Kabiru Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP). However, the Supreme Court recently overturned the lower courts’ rulings.
In an interview with BBC Hausa, Gawuna accepted the apex court’s judgment as God’s decision. Responding to this, the former Central Bank governor remarked that the APC tried to seize power through the courts without realizing that God had different plans.
Sanusi acknowledged the outcome as a divine decision and emphasized the importance of accepting destiny, whether favorable or unfavorable. He criticized the attempt to acquire power through the courts after losing in the election, stating that it is now too late for such actions.
The former Emir stressed that God stands by the truth and may give a tyrant a brief chance, but it will be short-lived. Sanusi extended his prayers for Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf’s success, encouraging him to fulfill his campaign promises. He also urged politicians to learn from the developed world, emphasizing that going to court to secure power should only be pursued when victory is certain in an election.
