The All Progressives Congress, APC, members and supporters have been urged by the Umar Ganduje-led Kano administration to maintain their composure in the wake of Saturday’s election results.
The New Nigeria Peoples Party’s (NNPP) Abba Kabir Yusuf, a protégé of former governor Rabiu Kwankwaso, won the closely contested election for governor.
Yusuf Abba polled 1,019,602 votes to defeat the incumbent Deputy Governor, Nasiru Yusuf-Gawuna of the APC, who secured 892,705 votes.
Reacting, the Kano authorities told the followers of the ruling party to ignore the provocations by the NNPP in the name of celebrations.
