His Excellency, Engr, the gubernatorial candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Abba Kabir Yusuf (Abba Gida Gida) has distanced himself from the purported crowdfunding for his 2023 election campaign.

Sunusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, the spokesperson to H.E. Engr. Abba K. Yusuf in a statement on Tuesday made the disclosure.

The statement read;

“The attention of his Excellency, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, the NNPP gubernatorial candidate for Kano State 2023 has been drawn to a mischievous video clip circulating virally on social media claiming that he consented to crowdfund of one thousand Naira (N1,000) from interested individuals and the members of the general public.

“We wish to inform the good people of Kano State, particularly members of our great party, the NNPP to disregard the content of the video as a mere campaign of calumny orchestrated by some ill-behaved individuals within the opposition political circle.

“It is worthy to note that his Excellency is aware of the existence of FRIENDS OF ABBA GIDA GIDA as a group of his associates from various Nigerian universities, other higher institutions, legal professionals, and those from the business community who organized themselves with the sole aim of promoting good governance and democracy in which they found in him (Abba Gida Gida) a worthy ambassador.

“Thus, by this press statement, His Excellency wishes to make it clear that he has never initiated any fundraising on his 2023 campaign activities which are yet to pick up.

“We remained resolute and totally committed to salvaging Kano state from the unfortunate situation which the people of the state found themselves under the present incompetent leadership.”
