Kano State governor, Abdullahi Ganduje has banned banners and posters of politicians during the Eid prayers and other festivities.

In a Sallah message signed by Muhammad Garba, Commissioner for Information, on Sunday, Mr Ganduje noted that the act caused distractions during prayers.

“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.

He added that while the Eid prayers were considered an important ritual after a month-long Ramadan fasting, other festivities were aimed at showcasing Kano’s rich cultural heritage.

The governor said pasting posters when people of different political leanings converged on Eid grounds, and traditional durbah at the Emir’s palace could result in political violence.

He warned individuals to avoid encouraging political rallies under any guise during the celebrations, adding that it violates the Electoral Act.

He also warned politicians in the state to comply with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) timetable of activities for the 2023 general elections.

Mr Ganduje further charged security agencies in the state to take appropriate measures against any deviant act capable of breaching the prevailing peace in Kano.
