A former governor of Kano State, Senator Ibrahim Shekarau, has advised Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and his opponent, Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to pray for God’s choice and accept it in good faith.

Shekarau was reacting to the much-heated Kano governorship dispute between the two political parties that is set for judgment at the Supreme Court.

Daily Trust reported that the Supreme Court led by a five-member panel of justices presided by Justice Inyang Okoro on Thursday reserved judgment after listening to lawyers in the matter.

Commenting on the development, Shekarau advised the duo that whatever the outcome of the court verdict might be, the party on the losing side should take it as the will of God and pray for the best.

He said, “May Allah choose leaders for Kano that will be of benefit to the people and the state. This is what we are praying for. He alone knows who to give and we are hopeful that he will answer our prayers.

“The issue of this is who we want; one that can deliver or not is not the case although it’s the way humans choose and express themselves from their desires.

“I am hopeful and urge both Abba Kabir Yusuf and Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna to take this as their prayers. They should ask God for the best for them. If it is not favourable to their persons they should ask God to change it for them with the best.

“God in his infinite mercy gives power to whom he wishes regardless of his religion, tribe or whatever else. The good and the bad.

“Even the judges, they work with what is presented to them and the Holy Prophet has told us that the judge when delivering a judgement has a reward either way. When he does justice he gets two rewards and when he does otherwise he gets a single reward. 

“We are hopeful that the judges will do what is right. If they do wrong let’s know that they are human.

“My advice to them is that whoever lost should not take offence and blame someone to have done it to him. He should pray to God to change it with what is best for him.”
