JUST-IN: Supreme Court Rules In Favour Of NNNP In Kano Guber Poll Appeal

The election of Abba Yusuf to the governorship of Kano State has been certified by the Supreme Court.

Gov Yusuf, the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) candidate, as governor of the state was wrongly dismissed by the tribunal and the court of appeal, according to a five-member panel of the supreme court

After hearing the appeals on December 21, 2023, the court has deferred its decision.

Yusuf was removed from office as state governor in September by the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.

Voter registration forms for Yusuf were not legally stamped, signed, and dated, so the tribunal subtracted 165,663 votes from the 1,019,602 total votes reported.

The tribunal then declared Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of the vote.

On November 17, the court of appeal upheld the tribunal’s verdict and added that Yusuf was not a member of the NNPP when he contested the election.
