BREAKING: Court of Appeal upholds tribunal judgement, affirms Gawuna as winner of Kano guber polls


ByUmar Audu

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Friday upheld the judgement of Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, declaring APC candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, as winner of the governorship election in the state.

The appellate court therefore dismissed the appeal filed by the NNPP candidate and governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf.

The Kano State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal on September 20 sacked the governor and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Nasiru Gawuna, winner of the March 18 governorship poll.

Dissatisfied by the lower tribunal’s decision, the governor, through his counsel Wole Olanipekun, asked the appellate court to set aside the judgment of the tribunal.
