Appeal Court’s Judgement: Professor of Northern Extraction Warns of Ignition of “Inferno” in Kano




Prof. Farooq Kperogi, a Kwara-born social critic based in the United States (US), has berated the judgement of the Appeal Court which affirmed the sack of Governor Abba Yusuf.…CONTINUE READING

Kperogi, in his column on Saturday, November 18, said he “sincerely hope this assault on justice isn’t the spark that ignites an inferno in Kano—and in the country”.

The writer alleged that Abdullahi Ganduje, the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) “is deploying the courts as cudgels to fustigate Rabiu Kwankwaso”.

Kwankwaso, a former governor of Kano state, was the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) during the February election. Ganduje, on the other hand, is the immediate past governor of Kano. The sacked Kano governor is a member of the NNPP and a loyalist of Kwankwaso.

Kperogi, in his latest piece, described embattled Governor Yusuf’s win at the poll earlier this year (2023) as “legitimately earned” while accusing the APC of trying to “steal” it from them.


He wrote:

“As I pointed out in my September 23, 2023, column titled “Why the Kano Verdict Can’t Stand,” it is apparent that former Kano State governor and current APC national chairman Abdullahi Ganduje has resolved to dare all consequences and use the federal might at his disposal to wrest the power that his party and his flunkey lost to Rabiu Kwankwaso and his son-in-law in the governorship election.”

Kperogi added:


“My advice for President Tinubu is to be very watchful because this is really treacherous territory. Righteous anger over obvious injustice—on top of ongoing existential torment in the country—can spark violence whose consequence we can’t predict.”
