PWDs seek peace in Kano

A group of people living with disabilities from Kano State has called on the Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government to do whatever it could to ensure that Kano State is not destabilised.

Together with other well-wishers, the people with disabilities on Thursday gathered at the Karonmajigi community in Abuja to draw global attention to the need for restoration of peace in the state.

They were referring to the governorship election in the state whose outcome is now being challenged in the Supreme Court after strange judgements were delivered at the lower courts.

Convener of the group, Sagir Ibrahim, called on President Bola Tinubu to save democracy and also save Kano State from a conflagration.

The group said, “We voted for Abba Kabir Yusuf, not Gawuna,” they stated, adding that, despite their physical challenges, they still travelled back home to vote for Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf.”

They said Governor Yusuf was caring and passionate about Kano.

“During the distribution of items donated as palliatives, he specially set aside items for people living with disabilities.

Less than seven months in office, he has made tremendous improvements and progress in governance and for the state in general,” they added.

The group is requesting the Supreme Court to ensure that justice is dispensed without fear or favour to sustain the people’s confidence in the judiciary.

They highlighted the impact Yusuf’s administration has made in their lives since he assumed office.

With a strong voice, they called on President Bola Tinubu not to disappoint the people of Kano.

“We still believe in the judiciary; we are optimistic they will do justice to the case,” one of the disabled persons said.
