Supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and their counterparts in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Kano State, have resorted to spiritual warfare, as they prepare for Saturday’s supplementary election in 30 out of the 44 Local Government Areas, in the State.
The prayer sessions, which reached a climax on Friday, have been holding in private homes and public Mosques, spread across the city of Kano.
Thousands of Muslims thronged Mosques in the city to pray for the peaceful conduct of the supplementary election, which has attracted heightened interest among residents.
Depending on their political affiliations, supporters trooped to various designated prayer points, to offer prayers in support of their preferred Candidates.
Supporters of the Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, gathered at a Mosque, in the Dala Local Government Area, to offer prayers for his success in the upcoming supplementary poll.
Supporters of a former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, held their first prayer session in the open field, at the Palace of the Emir of Kano.
Sources said that the permission of the Palace was not sought before members of the group converged there, on Wednesday.
However, members of the group, who are also in support of the opposition Candidate, Abba Yusuf, of the PDP, have followed up their prayer sessions in Mosques located within the party’s strongholds.
