 BREAKING: Supreme Court Reinstates Abba Yusuf as Kano State Governor   

All smiles ...Abba Yusuf

By Chidi-Ebere Moneme       

The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Abba Yusuf as the Kano State governor.   

A five member panel of the court held that the tribunal and the court of appeal erred by sacking Yusuf, candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) as governor of the state.       

The tribunal had set aside Governor Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party victory after declaring 165,663 of his votes invalid. The tribunal held that the deducted votes were from ballot papers that were neither stamped nor signed.  

He then approached the appeal court for redress. The appeal court upheld the tribunal’s decision and faulted the lower court for not disqualifying the governor.

The Supreme Court has, however, on Friday, reinstated the governor.
