Women Protest in Kano Over Appeal Court Controversy




No fewer than one thousand women have staged Kano streets to express their concerns over the recent controversy from the Appeal Court.
The women carrying placards chanting support songs for state Governor Abba Yusuf approached the state police command and submitted a letter containing their grievances in the aftermath of the Appeal Court judgment.

This is the first time in the history of Kano that women came out en masse to march on the streets, demanding justice for democracy and protecting their mandate in the March 18th governorship election.

One of the peaceful protesters, Hajiya Rabi Hotoro, said they are on the streets to express concerns over what transpired at the Appeal Court last week.

“We are out today because we believe in democracy and the independence of the judiciary. We want to call on the relevant stakeholders to do the needful and allow the will of the Kano people to prevail.”

Kano has been in serious political tension following the controversies over the appeal judgment, where verbal and written judgments differ.
