In theory nothing stops you from doing that. In practice however 
you have to deal with C++ anyway, how API matches ABI, and many 
more low level underlying things. You also need to know how your 
OS works.
Don't forget that you have to know the tools as well, dealing 
with Android means you will have to do cross-compilation. Must 
know how to use compilers, linkers and debuggers, and shell 
scripts as well as bonus.
Oh and don't forget that you have to make bindings to interface 
these 2 domains, and that requires knowledge of both D and C++.

So if you're too brave yet go ahead and try.

There was some Qt attempts such as this one
But since the last release was in 2016 it is probably no longer 
compiles, and I have no idea if it supports Android.
