Gov Abba Yusuf Dragged to United Nations over Unrest in Kano

Members of All Progressives Congress (APC) members from Kano state, operating under the banner of APC Youth Business Community in Kano (APC-YBCK), on Friday dragged the governor of the state, Abba Yusuf, to the United Nations over the unrest in the state.

The members staged a protest at the United Nations House in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Led by Alhaji Umar Ladiyo, the organisation claimed that the Kano state government demolished properties valued at billions of Naira without due process, adversely impacting business operations and livelihoods in the state.

The APC-YBCK, therefore, urged the United Nations to investigate the matter and called for intervention to rein in the Kano State Government, pointing out the potential for chaos and disorder if left unchecked.

The protesters called upon the international community to impose sanctions on the Kano state government and its supporters, alleging threats to the judiciary. They also urged the United Nations to allow the Nigerian judiciary to freely decide cases without external interference.

The petition, presented by the group, alleged that since the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) assumed power in Kano state, the local business community has faced peril.

Alhaji Ladiyo restated the APC’s commitment to the rule of law and expressed readiness to accept any outcome from the Supreme Court. He simultaneously called on the NNPP government in Kano state to demonstrate do so too, prioritising the state’s interests over other considerations.
