Supreme court sets date to sit on Kano Gubernatorial election

Boom RadioNG | December 18, 2023

The Supreme Court has set Thursday, 21st December, 2023 to sit on the appeal filed by Governor Kabiru Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) following the Court of Appeal’s judgement where it affirmed the Election Petition Tribunal’s decision to overturn his election victory.

According to the Commissioner of Information, Baba Dantiye, he affirmed the scheduled hearing, which holds significant implications for the Kano State governorship seat.

He said, “The forthcoming Supreme Court hearing is crucial in determining the election outcome. We await the court’s decision and hope for a resolution that upholds justice.”

Both the Appeal Court and the Tribunal upheld the stance that Nasiru Gawuna, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, emerged victorious in the election.

According to the judgement of both lower courts, the Nasiru Gawuna, the All Progressives Congress (INEC) had been directed to revoke the Certificate of Return previously issued to Yusuf and reissue it to APC’s Gawuna, recognising him as the state’s duly elected governor.

However, Yusuf, who was sworn in as governor in May, approached the apex court to challenge the decisions of the lower courts.
