Engr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso who contested for the office of the president in the recent concluded election under NNPP, has decried the prevalence of injustice in the country.
Kwankwaso who spoke at his Bompai residence in Kano on Thursday during a visit by the Kano Peace Committee said, unless everyone rise up to address the problem, no one is spared, not even those in high places or positions.
According to him, Nigeria is sinking because those saddled with responsibilities of leading the country have succeeded in destroying institutions of the country such as the judiciary.
He said, the prevailing injustice in the country led to the release of the House of Reps Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado Doguwa who is standing trial for murder.
“We are full of frustration that the system is not working, that the country has failed- Kwankwaso”
Kwankwaso accused the APC government of doing everything possible to remain in power in Kano even when the people demands a change, this desperation he said, has further heated the polity of the state.
Furthermore, he boasted that the party shall emerge victorious in the gubernatorial and the state house of assembly elections as the just concluded election has shown and that any attempt to change the people’s decision will be resisted.
“There cannot be peace where there is no justice, Nigeria is sinking- Kwankwaso”
Engr. Rabi’u however warned that the party will not continue to sit and watch the APC government continue to kill it’s supporters. He said Ganduje must accept to handover power to his party after the election the way he handed over after he lost election after his first tenure as governor in the state for the sake of peace.
The secretary of the committee, Ibrahim Waiya who spoke to news men shortly after their meeting with Kwankwaso and the NNPP Kano Guber candidate, Abba Kabir Yusuf said they took it upon themselves to further remind politicians and their parties about their commitment to Peace during the peace accord agreement.
He noted that a lot has happened in state in recent time which if allowed can degenerate into more ugly incidences hence the committee deemed it necessary to once again meet with stakeholders within the period INEC has extended the election.
Waiya added that all stakeholders concerned shall be visited to ensure everything goes well so that the state can continue to enjoy peace and development.
