How Nigerians Reacted

Meanwhile the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Kano has advised supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) against “wild celebrations” after the governorship election petitions tribunal’ judgment on Wednesday.

“Supporters should resist the temptation of wild celebrations during and after tribunal judgement, especially with vehicles or causing any form of obstruction on the roads,” sector commander Ibrahim Sallau-Abdullahi said in a statement.

He added, “Wild celebrations can cause a breach of traffic rules and regulations and result in obstruction of highways, and road traffic crashes will not be allowed, as perpetrators will face the full wrath of the law.”
