To maintain peace before, during and after the apex court decision on the governorship election, the ruling New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) have signed a peace treaty with the Kano State Police Command.
Naija News had earlier reported that the Abuja Court of Appeal was expected to rule on the state governor’s case on Friday.
Talking to reporters at the Bompai Police Headquarters on Thursday, the state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Usaini Gumel, stated that the armed forces had developed strategies to promote harmony and peace in the state before, during and after the ruling.
Together with other heads of security agencies, Gumel continued by saying that the command had implemented all security measures aimed at maintaining calm.
NNPP Vice President Wada Ibrahim and APC Secretary Ibrahim Sarina represented both political parties at the meeting.
“Both sides agreed to ensure peace and quiet before, during and after the announcement of the Court of Appeal’s judgment. We have also received assurances from leaders of both political parties that they will convey the message to their supporters and loyalists,” he added. Gumel said.
