Embattled Bayero Enjoying Tinubu’s Support Because Of His Yoruba Blood — NNPP

 

The chairman of the ruling New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in Kano State, Hashim Dungurawa has made a new claim against President Bola Tinubu.

 

He said the 15th Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado Bayero is being imposed on the state because he shares same Yoruba blood with Tinubu.

 

He stated this on Sunday while addressing journalists in Kano on the achievements of the ruling NNPP in the State in the last one year.

 

Dungurawa stated that there was no reason Emir Bayero would be given special protection by the Nigerian Army, Police, DSS and other security agencies against the interest of the state government.

 

He warned that President Tinubu’s alleged meddling into the Kano Emirate tussle would backfire against the President in 2027.

 

“Your perceived stance on the ongoing Kano Emirate Tussle would surely work against you in 2027 because if you think you can use it to gain ground in Kano when the chips are down you will realise your mistakes.

“If the President thinks he will use a few of his kinsmen in Kano and the alleged Bayero’s Yoruba lineage to continue to keep the deposed Emir Aminu Ado Bayero in the State, let him wait for 2027, we will show him that those people will not help him,” Dungurawa warned.

 

He then appealed to the President to see reason in doing all he could to bring to an end to the Kano Emirate debacle by ensuring that the deposed Emir was taken away from Kano.

 

The NNPP State chairman explained that his party will still field the national leader of the party, Dr. Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, as its presidential candidate in 2027 election cycle, assuring that the latter would be the next president of Nigeria.

 

Dungurawa further called for a review of the 2019 election outcomes, insisting that the immediate-past governor of Kano State and APC national chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, didn’t win the second term election as Kano State governor.
