The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has called on the people of the state and Nigerians as a whole to remain calm and allow the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to do its job, just as he commended the state’s Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Wakili over his role in maintaining peace and order in the state.
Mr Sanusi made the call while addressing a press conference on the inconclusive gubernatorial elections in some states across the country.
According to him, it is only the INEC has authority to conduct and announce the results of election and should be allowed to do its job.
He said: “We remind the public that INEC has already disclosed all the votes that were got by candidates of each political parties. Those votes are intact and nobody has been denied his votes.
“In subsequent re-run, each candidate will have the votes that are given to him, added to what he has acquired. We should therefore, give cooperation to all security agencies for peace to continue reigning in Kano.”
He commended the state’s Commissioner of Police, Muhammad Wakili and other heads of security agencies in the state for their efforts to protect lives and property during the elections.
