The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi the 2nd has called on residents to desist from spreading rumour that can lead to violence following the declaration of governorship election in the state inconclusive.
The monarch made the call while addressing a news conference at his Palace in Kano on Tuesday.
He said the call was necessary so as to douse the tension generated in the city as a result of the declaration of the governorship election inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC on Monday.
He said the law empowers only INEC to announce election results stressing that, “that should be respected by the people.”
He warned those sharing results not released by the electoral body to stop, in order not to mislead people.
The Emir also advised politicians not to heat up the polity by making comments that could lead to violence in the state.
