The New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Rabiu Kwakwaso, has been mocked online over the outcome of the Kano Election Petition Tribunal judgement, which was ruled in favour of the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the March 18, election.
Naija News reported that Nasir Gawuna of the (APC) was declared the winner.
The three-member panel led by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay on Wednesday upturned the declaration of Yusuf, who contested on the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) platform.
At the time of this report, Kwankwaso is currently trending on X, formerly known as Twitter, with many netizens mocking him.

If you compare the local politician to Peter Obi again, I will place a curse on your generation. Aje!

They also reused to cast their ballots for Kwankwaso in the 2023 election just because they’re hating Kano would grow and flourish. However, people who support this injustice are self-centered people and they’ve have no love for kano except their selfish gains and insha’Allah you’ll not succeed.”
