It is knowingly to all and sundry, some few days to the re-run of Kano polls, tension is hovering over the skies of northern-Nigeria trading centre, the political serenity of the ancient city and its environs is bracing up towards transforming from alarming to the fatal state of uncertainties stemmed from the post-gubernatorial and state assembly’s polls outcomes due to inconclusiveness.
The situation, at the moment, has become grossly and quite unbecoming, which turns out to be thriving for some ill-suited political money-suckers, inflaming and fanning the passion for self-advantage.
While some conventional and mainstream media have become platforms for curses, mudslinging, sycophancy, character assassination as well as a beehive of fake news dissemination from both sides, reportedly bankrolled on a peanut through the courtesy of behind the scenes directors, for mischievous intent and just to overheat the polity in their favour.

The gubernatorial contenders of both parties, APC and PDP should strictly bear in mind that, God Almighty, bestows power to whom He wishes, and wrest away power from whomsoever He wishes.
A contrary view to such conviction would not augur well and generate desired expectations for all and sundry.
For the meantime, those singing the song of ” Sai kayi takwas Ganduje” and the red-cap ideologist singing “,Abba Gida-Gida” song should continue blaring in a high-pitched but with a sense of decorum until the day of reckoning coming in few days, whereby the grain will be hand-sorted from the chaff.
While the religious-minded gubernatorial aspirant who came third under the banner of PRP in the 9th gubernatorial polls had already succumbed and contented with handful votes his party got
Saying that” To fall in peace and dignity is worth than to win through questionable means”
Peace and harmony outweighs political aspirations
Living in Peace is worth than been a crowned Prince.
