All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders, under the umbrella of National Coalition of APC Progressives Stakeholders have mocked the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) for organising an “embarrassing 8-man protest” in London against the judgment of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which sacked Gov. Abba Yusuf.
Its National Secretary, Isabella Odunayo, who spoke on behalf of others, said it was shameful that Yusuf and the Kwankwasiyya Movement only got eight persons for a protest which targeted about 1,000 people, a sign that Nigerians both home and in the diaspora accepted the judgment in good faith.
She said the group is addressing the press to respond to some of the lies being circulated by the NNPP, adding that it was barbaric and archaic for the NNPP to toe the part of blackmail calling for justice in far away London when justice has already been served with the judgment of the tribunal.
Her words: “After failed attempts to discredit the tribunal ruling, the NNPP desperation took them to London where it sponsored a protest to blackmail the federal government and discredit the tribunal judgment. Unknown to the organizers, Nigerians in the diaspora had watched clips of the jubilation that trailed the APC victory at the tribunal.
“It is shameful that Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf and the Kwankwasiyya Movement only got eight persons for a protest which targeted about 1,000 people, a sign that Nigerians both home and in the diaspora accepted the judgment in good faith.
“The NNPP should be aware that the judiciary cannot be intimidated by its threat as security agencies in Nigeria are fully prepared to secure the Country. The eight people led by Dr Aminu Bello who embarrassed themselves yesterday (on Sunday) in London do not represent the interest of Nigerians.”
