BREAKING: Supreme Court Declares Abba Kabir Yusuf as Duly Elected Governor of Kano State

The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Governor Abba Yusuf of New Nigeria Peoples party, NNPP, as the validly elected governor of Kano State.

The apex court set aside the judgements of Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and that of the Court of Appeal, which declared APC candidate Nasiru Gawuna as the winner.

Delivering the judgement on Friday, the chairman of the panel, Justice John Okoro, returned Mr Yusuf’s 165,616 votes, which the lower tribunal invalidated and deducted from the votes cast in his favour.
