I’m not governor for APC alone, Sani Bello declares
Police warn against electoral violence in Kano rerun
Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has admonished members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop considering him as governor for APC alone rather than governor of the entire state.
His words: “Election is over and it is now time for governance and for our people to enjoy the dividends of democracy. The state is one and we must remain as one.
“The recent Supreme Court judgement has put an end to all those divisions and so what we need now is to join hands and move the state forward, especially in the area of security.”
Bello stated this in Minna yesterday when 25 recently elected council chairmen visited his office to congratulate him on his victory at the Supreme Court.
Commissioner for Local Government, Community Development and Chieftaincy Affairs, Abdulmalik Sarkindaji, applauded the election that brought them into office and urged the people to hold their elected officials accountable.
Meanwhile, ahead of January 25, 2020, rerun elections in Kano State, the Police Command vowed to deal ruthlessly with any person or group of persons that cause violence during the poll, regardless of their political affinity.
Commissioner of Police in Kano, Habu A. Sani gave the warning at a meeting with political parties, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kano.
Habu, who disclosed the police readiness to maintain maximum protection of voters and INEC officials, disclosed that arrangements have been concluded to deplore operatives to all the polling units.
Earlier, Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Professor Risquwa Arabu Shehu revealed that National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) members would not be deployed to Bebeji Federal constituency for the election due to security threats on them in the area.
