The Nigerian Youths in Politics (NYIP) has condemned the ongoing harassment of the judiciary by some aggrieved persons who lost at the tribunal and the Appeal Court as a result of non-compliance with the electoral Act 2022 as amended.
The NYIP, in a statement issued by its National President, Magaji Alidu, said that the court did not act ultra vires when it held that Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, the Governor of Kano State was not a member of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) as of the time the party sponsored him as the governorship candidate of Kano State.
The group also condemned the negative campaign being championed by the NNPP and Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State, urging them to stop forthwith.
“We also learnt that one Auwal Rafsanjani of CISLAC have been mobilising some civil society organisations to blackmail the judiciary. By this singular act, Auwal has derailed from the norms of Civil Society, no wonder, he is a strong member of the Kwankwasiyya Movement which metamorphosed into the NNPP,” the statement said.
The NYIP called on the Kano State Government and the leadership of the NNPP to apologize for lambasting the judiciary because the judgement did not go in their favour.
“We equally warn those hired to tarnish the reputable image of the Hon. Justices to desist from doing so as the law is no respecter of persons,” the statement added.
The NYIP said that it will continue to engage the public on prevailing democratic issues in view of a better society.
