Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has banned banners and posters of politicians during the Eid prayers and other festivities as he claims it is a means of distraction.
A Sallah message signed by Muhammad Garba, Commissioner for Information, on Sunday, stated: “It is therefore inappropriate or even disrespectful for persons or political parties to reduce such places to grounds for rallies or campaigns,” the governor said.
Governor Abdullah Ganduje of Kano blocked political banners and placards during Eid prayers and other celebrations.
He added that although the Eid prayers are considered an important tradition after Ramadan, some festivals are intended to showcase the rich cultural heritage of Kano.
He warned people to refrain from promoting political rallies under any circumstances, adding that this would violate electoral law.
He also warned politicians in the province to support the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) plan for the 2023 general elections.
Mr Ganduje also charged the state security services to take appropriate action against any disturbing activity that could disrupt the peace in Kano.
