Net worth

There is no public record of Abba Kabir-Yusuf’s net worth.


In September 2022, Abba was rumoured to have been requesting one thousand naira (N1,000) donation from members of the general public to fund his campaign.

He denied the rumour in a statement made available to the mediaby his aide, Sanusi Bature,

He claimed the “misinformation” is an attempt to tarnish the reputation of his principal.

The statement reads; “We wish to inform the good people of Kano State, particularly members of our great party, the NNPP to disregard the content of the video as a mere campaign of calumny orchestrated by some ill-behaved individuals within the opposition political circle, Mr Bature said.

“It is worthy to note that his Excellency is aware of the existence of FRIENDS OF ABBA GIDA GIDA as a group of his associates from various Nigerian universities, other higher institutions, legal professionals and those from the business community who organized themselves with the sole aim of promoting good governance and democracy in which they found in him (Abba Gida Gida) a worthy ambassador.

“Thus, by this press statement, His Excellency wishes to make it categorically clear that he has never initiated any fundraising for his 2023 campaign activities which are yet to pick up.

“We remained resolute and committed to salvaging Kano state from the unfortunate situation in which the people of the state found themselves under the present incompetent leadership,” the statement said.

Abba in 2020 accused Governor Abdullah Umar Ganduje of violating rule of law and due process on alleged sales of public property.

He petitioned the Chief Justice of Nigeria, (CJN) and Nigeria Judicial Council (NJC), requesting their urgent intervention on what he considered an abuse of power and breach of rules of law by Ganduje.
