Written by admin on January 20, 2020
The Supreme Court has affirmed Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State as duly elected in the March 23 governorship Election in the state.
In a unanimous judgement read by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta on Monday, the court held that the challenger, Abba Yusuf of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP), did not show that the Court of Appeal and the Election Tribunal were wrong in their earlier rulings. The seven-member panel said the appeal had no merit and dismissed it.
The apex court also struck out a cross-appeal filed by Mr Ganduje, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
