Supreme Court to deliver judgment on Kano governorship poll Friday

Governor Abba Kabir-Yusuf

The Supreme Court will deliver judgment on the Kano State governorship election appeals on Friday.

Confirming this to Daily Trust, legal team’s secretary for the New Nigeria People’s Party, Bashir Tudun Wuzirci, stated that each party had been directed not to come to the court with more than two counsels.

He said, “Yes, it is officially confirmed. They told us to appear on Friday for the judgment. They told us that each party should not have more than two counsels in attendance. This, they said, is because they will be delivering seven judgments on the same Friday,” he added.

Governor Abba Yusuf had appealed the judgment of the Court of Appeal which had affirmed his sacking by the state election petition tribunal.

The tribunal also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue a certificate of return to Nasir Yusuf Gawuna, candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the March, 2023 election.

On its part, the appeal court, while affirming the governor’s sack, further held that he was not an NNPP member as of the time of the election and could not have been said to be properly sponsored for the election.
