BREAKING! Supreme Court affirms Tambuwal, Ganduje

 

The Supreme Court in Nigeria  has dismissed an appeal filed by Ahmed Aliyu challenging the election of Aminu Tambuwal as Governor of Sokoto state.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Uwani Abba-Aji, the apex court dismissed the appeal on the ground that the appellant failed to prove his allegation of non-compliance with the electoral act and issues of over-voting.

Similarly, the Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Kano state governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abba Kabir Yusuf, filed an appeal at the apex court to dispute the March 23 supplementary election held in some electoral wards in Kano State.

A seven-man panel of justices of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, after listening to arguments by the counsels representing the appellant and the respondents in the suit, fixed today to decide the fate of the appeal.
