Kwankwaso vows to resist state of emergency in Kano

Rabiu Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano State and leader of the Kwankwasiyya Movement, has vowed to resist any attempt to declare a state of emergency in the state.

The NNPP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, accused the federal government of compromising Kano security by its refusal to take away heavy operatives guarding the deposed Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Kwankwaso was reacting to the ongoing situation in Kano where federal security agencies are allegedly backing the deposed Emir Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero.

Speaking during the flag-off ceremony for the construction of 82 kilometres of rural road networks at his hometown, Madobi, Senator Kwankwaso said the people of Kano would resist any attempt to undermine the constituted authority in the state.

“We have mass followership because people believe in us, we are pro-people and the NNPP administration is determined to serve them anywhere they voted for it,” he said.

He added that as politicians, “we will not fold our arms and watch enemies of the state destroy the peaceful co-existence of our dear state, as we shall do everything possible to support the governor to succeed. I am happy that he is not distracted and is focused on achieving his goals.

“There are people from Kano, enemies of the state, who also suffer mental illness and are the ones advising the Federal Government on how to take over Kano through a State of Emergency. This is the madness of the highest order that the good, peace-loving and committed people of Kano will resist.”

Kwankwaso also stated that “in the build-ups to 2027, some desperate politicians are already on a mission of disruption, but we will rather prefer the two of us to lose than to allow them to crush us unnecessarily.

“We dare anybody, who thinks he can victimise us politically, to be rest assured that we are ready for the fight.

“We are not afraid to be out of power because we will remain politicians in or out of government, we cannot run away from our destiny, we are humans, we know what is good for us and we will pursue it vigorously.”

Kwankwaso further stated that the Federal Government was listening to some unpatriotic politicians from Kano who would only contribute to its failure.

He vowed that the people of Kano would resist any attempt to undermine the constitutional responsibility of the governor by any individual or group.

“We are open to dialogue, truce and reconciliation, but we will not accept intimidation and political harassment of any sort.

“We know how to play politics and we have all it takes to protect ourselves from any evil,” Kwankwaso said.
