Socio-political activist Reno Omokri has said that President
Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s re-election in 2027 is now certain, following the removal
of Abba Yusuf as the Kano State governor.


Recall that on Friday that the Appeal Court ruled that
Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State was not a member of the New Nigerian Peoples
Party (NNPP) at the time the elections were conducted.


Yusuf won the election on the platform of the NNPP but the
court upheld the position of the governorship election tribunal, which ruled
that the governor is not qualified to contest for the seat.


The judges further stated that the tribunal was wrong not to
have disqualified the appellant, Governor Yusuf.


Omokri wrote: “The sacking of Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano by
the Court of Appeals has made Bola Tinubu’s re-election in 2027 more certain.


“Why? Because Kano has the highest registered voters of any
state and will give at least two million votes to presidential candidates in
2027. Sadly, whoever is governor tends to direct where those votes go.


“If the NNPP and Labour Party know what is good for them,
they should merge with the PDP, as Waziri Atiku suggested. Because if they do
not merge, then Tinubu will re-emerge. It is just common sense. Although common
sense is not so common in Nigerian politics!”
