Over 100 lawyers have voluntarily stood for the Kano State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf, to challenge the victory of the incumbent governor of the state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, in court.
This was made known by Sen Herssern Umar, chairman Kwankwasiyya Red Cap Rangers, International Movement for Justice.
Umar said thuggery, vote-buying, lost of lives and other election misconducts were witnessed in almost all the polling units where the re-run was conducted.
He stated that over 100 lawyers voluntarily dedicated themselves to challenge the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for what they described as a stolen mandate and an abuse of democracy.
He noted that they have all the necessary pieces of evidence to support their case to ensure that the court nullifies the re-run election and mandate INEC to declare Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf the winner.
