The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has also published a statement stating that a similar parade will be held today, Thursday, with Governor Ganduje leading.
Haruna Doguwa, the State Chairman of the NNPP, informed journalists that they wrote to the police a week earlier, alerting them that their Presidential Candidate, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, planned to have a final rally in Kano, just like any other presidential candidate.
“But, to our chagrin, the APC is also holding a similar gathering, openly attacking us and attempting to instill fear and uncertainty in the ancient City,”
Doguwa claimed that the APC is assaulting their members and that the scheduled mega gathering is being organized to incite violence in the state.
He similarly explained that just last week, they were attacked by the APC thugs around Gaya when they were on campaign.
APC Municipal Local Government Chairman, Hafizu Alfindiki was quoted announcing on his social media platform that the Party was coming out en masse for their grand rally on Thursday.
When contacted on what they are doing to prevent possible violence between the two rival political parties, the State Police Commissioner, Mohammed Yakubu said they were on top of the situation.
The Police Commissioner explained that they would do all they could to ensure that Kano remained peaceful no matter the threat.
