Governor of Kano State: Sheikh Dahiru Usman-Bauchi vehemently retracts CJN

Posted by

Sheikh Dahiru Usman-Bauchi, a prominent Islamic scholar in Bauchi State, has denied any involvement with a letter that has been making the rounds online about the legal dispute over the governorship of Kano State.

Social media users claimed to have seen a letter addressed to Chief Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, CJN, headlined “Request for Prompt Intervention of Justice,” which sought to sway the decision of the Supreme Court.

Last Thursday, the Court of Appeal upheld the decision of the election petition tribunal, which had removed Governor Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and declared Dr. Nasiru Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the victor. According to GODZGENERALBLOG, the Supreme Court had previously reserved its verdict in the Kano governorship appeal.

Nevertheless, Sayyadi Tijjani, who is both the vice chairman and a son of the Islamic cleric Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, rejected the letter in a statement released on Sunday.

“Our attention was drawn to the purported letter sent to the Chief Justice of Nigeria,” he stated, representing his father. Many different types of people are calling to make sure the letter is real and authentic.

Actually, Maulana Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi is not the sender of the letter. This is not Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi’s letterhead.

“According to the writers, the letterhead of the Sheikh Dahiru Foundation was forged. The Sheikh is not listed as a signatory on the foundation’s letterhead, and even today, he does not sign any letters. However, all letters addressed to him bear his special seal and stamp.”
