The Supreme Court. Image: thenationonlineng.net   The Supreme Court rules on Friday over Kano’s governorship. The appeal filed by Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, who is contesting the Court of Appeal’s decision, has been scheduled for hearing by the Supreme Court for Friday, January 12. This is stated in a notice that the supreme court sent out to each party involved in the lawsuit on Wednesday. The notice states that the court ordered no more than two solicitors from each side to be present. According to sources, the appellate court upheld the tribunal’s decision to remove Governor Abba Yusuf and proclaim Dr. Nasiru Gawuna, the APC candidate, the legitimate victor. The Appeal Court’s decision has been criticised by NNPP supporters, particularly the dispute over the allegation that the governor was the subject of two separate rulings, one in favour of the other. Conversely, the APC faithful persisted in applauding the two rulings that supported their candidate. Gumel, the commissioner of Kano State Police, was obliged by the state’s anxiety to forbid any protests or rallies and to compel the leaders of both parties to sign a peace agreement, albeit little has come of it as violent occurrences have continued. Barrister Bashir Tudun Wuzirci, the secretary of the NNPP legal team, also verified that Friday was the date set by the supreme court for the decision. Indeed, it has been formally verified. They have instructed us to show up for the ruling on Friday. They advised us that no more than two counsels should be present for any one party. He stated, “They explained that this is because they will be making seven rulings on the same Friday. A five-member Supreme Court bench led by Justice John Inyang Okoro heard arguments from the parties in late December of last year […]

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF). Image: thenationonlineng.net   According to police, the phrase “no greed for anybody” might throw Nigerians into a panic. The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has issued a warning, stating that the motto “no gree for anybody,” which young people are adopting, may cause problems for the nation. The slogan “no greed for anybody” has gained popularity on social media and in public spaces. “Do not tolerate any form of nonsense from anybody” is the loose meaning of the expression. The Force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, stated during a news briefing that intelligence findings indicate the slogan has the potential to throw Nigeria into a catastrophic disaster. “‘No dey gree for anybody’ is the new slogan for young people for 2024,” Adejobi stated. Our intelligence has alerted us that this is coming from the retributionary sector, which could potentially cause issues throughout the entire nation. The security community sees the catchphrase as “dangerous,” according to Adejobi, even if it is perceived as “normal talk.” “No dey gree for anybody is regarded as mere banter. We view it as a highly risky slogan that can spark crises in the security sector.
