The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) have signed a peace pact with the Kano State Police Command ahead of the Appeal Court verdict on the governorship election scheduled for Friday.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel, disclosed this while addressing journalists at the Police Command Headquarters in Bompai on Thursday.
NNPP and the APC were represented at the meeting by Vice Chairman of the NNPP, Wada Ibrahim and Secretary of the APC, Ibrahim Sarina.
According to him, the Force had drawn up modalities to promote peace and harmony in the state before, during and after the verdict.
Gumel, who spoke in company with other heads of security agencies, added that the command had concluded all security arrangements to ensure peace.
“Both parties have agreed on ensuring that peace and calmness are sustained before, during and after the declaration of the Appeal Court judgement,” Gumel said.
“We have also received assurances from the two political party’s leaders that they will pass the message down to their followers and loyalists.”
