The acting Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, has directed all party supporters in the state to reserve their weapons and deal with political opponents on election day come 2023.
The Chairman said this while addressing a mammoth crowd, at the swearing-in ceremony of the newly elected chairmen of the 44 local government councils in the state, held on Friday in Kano.
After brandishing crude weapons and chanting the APC slogan in unison, the acting APC chair asked the thugs to drop their weapons, saying, “we will tell you when to use your weapons.
“If you find any opposition rigging the election, don’t spare him, finish him instantly and nothing will be done.
“This is my punishment. Punishment for anybody rigging election. Nothing would be done,” Abbas declared.
The interim APC chairman is famous for inciting speeches against political opponents.
In his remarks, Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, charged the elected 44 Local Government chairmen and 484 councillors to remain focused and live up to expectations.
He warned them to shun corruption and other related tendencies, reminding them of his administration’s zero-tolerance to corruption.
