No fewer than 200 private legal practitioners from the 19 Northern States have volunteered to assist Governor Kabir Yusuf of Kano State to win his Gubernatorial election appeal case at the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

The lawyers revealed their decisions on Sunday when they addressed the media in Kaduna under the banner of ‘Abba Kabir Yusuf Volunteer Lawyers Forum For The 19 – Northern States And Abuja’.

The spokesman of the lawyers, Yusuf Ibrahim urged President Bola Tinubu and the Supreme Court not to allow Nigeria become a one-party state, saying that it was an unhealthy democratic practice.

They expressed concern over independence of judiciary in the country.

The lawyers insisted that the rule of law must be obeyed to ensure the vote of every Nigerian counts during elections.

They further expressed solidarity with Yusuf while opining that the Appeal Court judgment in favour of APC was clear miscarriage of justice.

“We volunteer as private legal practitioners to participate in the litigation in solidarity for Gov. Yusuf at the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

“We want to represent the truth in the fight to reclaim his mandate and that of the people of Kano State,”.Ibrahim added.

The group also demanded a reworking of the Electoral Act.

The lawyers called on the Supreme Court to resist any form of external interference to protect the image of the judiciary and uphold the rule of law.
