The party accused Yusuf, of “wasting” the state’s funds, The Nation reported.
According to the party, Yusuf, who purportedly won the governorship election on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) was heavily bankrolling “stage-managed protests, deliberately intended to create tension in the state and make it look like all is not well.”
Ilyasu Musa Kwankwaso, an ex-commissioner for rural and community development, who spoke for APC said:
“Stop wasting Kano’s meagre resources and wait for the Supreme Court judgement.”
He noted that nobody would come out to protest Yusuf’s sack by the court after the governor had illegally demolished their property worth billions of naira, Daily Trust report added.
Ilyasu, reminded Yusuf and the public how the APC was declared winner of the March 18 governorship poll and its candidate Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna was declared as the duly elected Governor of Kano state by the Court of Appeal.
