Appeal Court Sacks Kano Governor, Upholds Tribunal Verdict

APC Governorship Candidate

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the verdict of the tribunal that sacked Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State.

The tribunal had earlier declared 165,663 votes of Yusuf as invalid due to the absence of signatures or stamps by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The governor’s votes were reduced to 853,939, while his APC rival’s votes remained at 890,705.

Yusuf rejected the tribunal’s decision and appealed, arguing that it was the first time an election was annulled over the non-signing of the back of ballot papers.
