Galadima acknowledged that the country could have been on fire if such a verdict had been issued.
Buba Galadima, a prominent figure in the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), expressed relief over the Supreme Court’s decision not to sack Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State during its recent judgments. Galadima acknowledged that the country could have been on fire if such a verdict had been issued. Advertisements Galadima went on to commend President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for respecting the independence of the judiciary, despite the involvement of Nasir Gawuna, an APC member, in the matter. Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Galadima credited Tinubu’s strength of character for contributing to the prevailing peace in Nigeria and the positive global perception of the nation. Advertisements The apex court’s judgments on Friday, particularly in the cases of Kano, Zamfara, and Plateau, overturned lower court decisions, setting a rare precedent in the nation’s judiciary. Galadima applauded the Supreme Court’s reversal of the tribunal and appellate court decisions, which reinstated governors in the three states. This outcome was welcomed by opposition parties, including the NNPP and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who now control Kano, Plateau, and Zamfara States Advertisements Before the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Kano governorship dispute, the state was marked by high tension and palpable anxiety. The NNPP had ousted the APC in the last poll, leading to clashes between political heavyweights. The electoral umpire initially declared NNPP’s Yusuf as the winner, but subsequent tribunal and appellate court decisions favored APC’s Gawuna, triggering protests in Kano. Yusuf’s appeal to the Supreme Court resulted in his reinstatement as the duly elected governor, prompting widespread celebrations among NNPP supporters. Galadima revealed suspicions of a plot to forcefully take power from the NNPP in Kano. He alleged a concerted effort at various levels and congratulated the Supreme Court for restoring the honor and dignity of the judiciary. He emphasized that a contrary ruling could have sparked unrest and eroded confidence in the judiciary. Advertisements The NNPP chieftain concluded by highlighting the significance of the Supreme Court’s decision, asserting that it safeguarded not only the integrity of the judiciary but also maintained public trust in seeking redress through legal channels.
