There was tension in Kano on Friday as parents and guardians rushed to pick their wards in schools.
A head teacher of one of the private schools in Normandsland area of Fagge Local Government in Kano told Daily Trust that the parents were worried that there could be crisis over the sack of Governor Abba Yusuf by the Appeal Court.
Daily Trust reports that there has been heightened anxiety among residents of Kano since Thursday when the Appeal Court announced that it would deliver judgement on the much anticipated governorship election dispute.
After the court made the announcement on Thursday, there was panic buying as residents feared that a curfew might be imposed.
A businessman at Kwari market, Yunusa Abdullah, said, “We are praying for things to go easily without any issue but for me, I will not even come to the market because you can never tell what will happen.
“I wonder why all this, now, everybody will go to sleep with this in their minds thinking. You will see by tomorrow, all busy streets will.be relatively empty. Everybody will sit at home because we have seen what happened when the Tribunal gave its verdict.”
Also speaking, another businessman, Usman Bello, said, “Let them do what they want to do but they should know that God is watching and they have created unnecessary tension among the teeming populace.
“We will not come out to the market tomorrow, you see, they will definitely cheat us as we would not be able to come out and get our daily bread.”(Daily Trust)
