The good folks of Kano state will go to the polls on Saturday 23rd March 2019, to conclude the inconclusive governorship election of ninth March 2019 in some components of the state, it’s with nice admiration I’ve adopted and skim concerning the state of affairs report. As anticipated, the nation will probably be keenly watching and observing as occasions unfold.
To start with, Kano being probably the most populous state, having the second highest variety of registered voters within the nation and likewise one of many fashions of peaceable election is unarguably the center of Nigerian politics. Contemplating how enlightened ”Kanawa” are at voting the candidates of their alternative throughout get together traces, any get together or particular person looking for energy on the centre wants Kano as a lot as human beings want oxygen. With the ”Buhari issue” now misplaced, it’s due to this fact no shock that the politics of 2023 on the centre has unofficially kicked off in Kano. Political calculations have it that whoever has Kano holds the aces in 2023.
Expectedly, by no means has the ephemerality of politics been extra obvious within the nation in the present day than in Kano. The state is pervaded by a miasma of tense and risky ambiance arising from bitter rivalry between the 2 energy camps (Kwankwasiyya and Gandujiyya). The ripple impact of this has led to the destruction of lives and properties.
My variety attraction to those ”Energy camps” is to notice that the conduct of this re-run election in a peaceable, free and truthful method is a victory for each of them. They are going to be writing their names within the sands of time by guaranteeing that their private ambition or feud because the case could also be isn’t well worth the blood of a single ”Bakano”. Let the ambiance be conducive sufficient for folks to train their franchise. The safety businesses ought to guarantee and defend the security of voters.
I due to this fact urge the great folks of Kano to not solely come out and vote, however to make sure that these votes depend. It’s certainly an act of bravery synonymous to ”Kanawa” to return out in opposition to any type of risk, intimidation and/or violence to forged their vote. It’s cause we’re transferring ahead as a result of worth at all times honors who reward it.
There’ll at all times be individuals who consider Kano politics is to Nigerian politics what Roger Federer is to tennis. There may even at all times be individuals who will debate that, however the truth nonetheless stays that Kano is the lion and can roar once more come Saturday.
