Leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in Kano have signed a fresh peace accord ahead of the supreme court verdict on the governorship election dispute in the state.

The leaders of both parties signed the accord on Friday during a meeting at the Kano state police command headquarters.

The meeting was organised for the leaders of APC, NNPP and security agencies to review and renew their commitment towards security in the state.

Speaking with journalists, Mohammed Gumel, Kano commissioner of police, said the leaders of the parties were briefed about the security situation in the state ahead of the festive season and supreme court verdict.

Gumel asked residents to go about their lawful businesses during the celebrations, adding that security agencies are working to ensure hitch-free festivities.

“We must appreciate and commend the leadership of both APC and NNPC for maintaining their position on the peace accord,” Gumel said.

“Today, Friday 8th December 2023, the heads of the joint security agencies meeting was held at the police headquarters where the security situation was reviewed and the security arrangements agreed upon to be put in place for no breakdown of law and order before, during and after the state governorship supreme court verdict.

“In addition, the meeting addressed some emerging security concerns with the leadership of both NNPP, APC and some selected local government council chairmen.”

In November, the two parties signed a peace accord ahead of the judgment of the appeal court on the outcome of the governorship election.

After the appeal court verdict, there were protests in the state against the judgment that affirmed the ruling of the tribunal which sacked Abba Yusuf, candidate of the NNPP, as the governor.

Another controversy ensued after the certified true copy of the judgment contained contradictory resolutions, with the judge ruling in favour of and against the governor at the same time.
