Kano govt raises alarm over recruitment of fake election observers by NNPP



Kano state government has raised alarm over information it received on planned use of suspected election observers by members of the opposition New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the state to perpetrate a network of election rigging during and after the Saturday governorship and state House of Assembly election.
