January 24, (THEWILL) – Over 250 Women lawyers in Kano have declared support for the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Similarly, the women lawyers have endorsed the state APC gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna.
This was contained in a statement by the Chairlady of the Group, Barrister Nafisa Abba Isma’il Esq, and made available to newsmen in Kano, on Monday.
According to the statement, the women lawyers made their position known when they visited the Tinubu Campaign Office in Kano, under the leadership of its North West Director, Bappa Babba Danagund.
They said they decided to support Tinubu and Gawuna after assessing all the presidential candidates and Kano gubernatorial candidates and found out that the duo are the best among all the candidates.
The group described Tinubu as the best presidential candidate given his antecedent in Lagos, his human development policies and his relationship with the judiciary.
“We believe that looking at his antecedent in Lagos, it’s our hope and believe that he will make the judiciary great. For this reason, we believe Tinubu is the right person to support and vote for.
“When the judiciary is allowed to work and get adequate funding, then there will be no corruption in the country’s judicial system as judges will stand up to their feet and do what is right,” Barrister Nafisa said.
She thanked Dan’agundi for providing the platform to meet with Tinubu when he visited Kano recently, in addition to arranging a special meeting with the State APC gubernatorial candidate at the presidential campaign office.
The leader of the group told the Director that the group had started mobilising women lawyers in the entire geo-political zone, intending to bring them on board for the success of the party in the forthcoming general election.
In his remarks, Dan’agundi thanked the women lawyers and urged them to mobilise their members in the entire northern and southern parts of the country for the victory of the party in the upcoming general elections.
The Director further commended the group for endorsing Ahmed Bola Tinubu and the Kano APC Gubernatorial candidate, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna, and urged them to continue to work together for victory in the State and country at large.
Dan’agundi, who promised to ensure a good working relationship with the group, urged them to guide and enlighten other APC members on the dos and don’ts of the Electoral Act
“We sincerely appreciate your gesture and support because it’s the first of its kind in the whole federation.
“The first time a teeming populace of women lawyers came together to endorse a particular candidate. This is quite encouraging and we’ll never let you down,” he said.
