Normalcy has returned to Kano after the Supreme Court judgement affirming the election of Governor Abba Yusuf, which electrified the town with wild jubilation.

Before the judgement, most residents of the state capital stayed indoors, while the streets remained deserted for fear of possible violent reactions to the Apex Court’s verdict.

Similarly,markets,shopping malls,banks and motor parks and eateries, among other public places, remained shut,as their operators refused to open them, also for fear of any possible breach of the peace.

However, the situation remained largely peaceful after the announcement of the judgement,as the commercial city witnessed an eruption of wild but peaceful celebrations by supporters of the NNPP in reaction to the judgement.

The NNPP faithful trooped to the major streets of the state capital in cars and motorcycles, singing the the party’s slogans in celebration of the judgement.

The celebrations had hardly died down when the residents gauged the peaceful atmosphere and resumed their normal activities, opening businesses and other public arena.

Our Correspondent also observed that the tension that enveloped the town for several months before the judgement has now eased,with the residents now exchanging banters and thanking God for the return of normalcy to the city.

The Supreme Court had earlier upheld the election of Governor Abba Yusuf as the duly elected governor of Kano State.

The apex court set aside the verdicts of the Court of Appeal and the election petitions tribunal which nullified the victory of Governor Yusuf in the March 18, 2023 governorship poll.
