The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has directed its members to observe fasting and prayers to seek God’s intervention to attain victory in the governorship election petition tribunal.
Naija News reports that the latest development is coming barely 48 hours after the party’s main rival in the state, the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), also held a prayer session on Saturday seeking victory from God on the outcome of the much-anticipated judgment as well for peace and tranquillity in the state.
Recall that Kano State polity has been heated up since an election petition tribunal judge, Flora Azinge, raised an alarm that some lawyers were allegedly bribing members of the elections petitions tribunal on behalf of their clients, which led to accusations and counter-accusations between the state’s APC and NNPP.
The NNPP secretary, Ibrahim Zakari Sarina, in an interview with Daily Trust on Monday, disclosed that the majority of their supporters have already commenced their fasting while offering prayers at various wards, local government levels and campaign offices.
He said, “As you know, we are democrats and we don’t believe in chaotic procession or anything that will look like a cult.
“Looking at the economic situation in the country, we advised, not mandated, anyone who can afford to observe the fasting to fast, and many are doing it today (Monday).
“The prayer sessions are being held at the Ward level, local government levels, and in our campaign offices across the state. We don’t want a situation where we will suffer as individuals. We want it to be peaceful and orderly.
“I am also travelling to my village to join them today (Monday). We will break fast there and pray.”
