Protesters Warn Against Interference

A group of supporters from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State gathered at the national secretariat of the United Nations in Abuja on Friday. They were there to express their concerns and urge the UN not to interfere in Nigeria’s judicial process.

Opposition Party’s Petition

The New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP), led by Governor Abba Yusuf, had recently submitted a petition to various international organizations, including the UN, the European Union, and the British High Commission. The petition was in response to a Court of Appeal’s judgment that upheld Yusuf’s removal as the state governor.

APC’s Perspective

The Kano APC believed that the NNPP’s petition was an attempt to gain sympathy from the international community after failing to influence the judiciary in their favor. Umar Ladiyo, the leader of the APC protesters, emphasized the importance of upholding the rule of law in Kano.

Appeal to the UN

Ladiyo appealed to the UN not to be swayed by the NNPP’s actions and to respect Nigeria’s sovereignty. He highlighted that Nigeria has its own laws and regulations, including a constitution and electoral laws. Ladiyo urged the UN to trust in the Nigerian judiciary and allow them to carry out their duties independently.
