Kano: Appeal Court certified judgment affirms NNPP’s Yusuf duly elected gov – AG

Kano, Nov. 21,2023

A certified copy of the Court of Appeal judgment on Kano State governorship election has affirmed the victory of Kabiru Yusuf as the duly elected governor of Kano state.

The state Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Haruna Isa-Dederi, made the disclosure while addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Kano.

Isa-Dederi said in the fresh revelation as contained in the written judgment, the Court of Appeal set aside the judgment of the Kano election petition tribunal for lacking in merit.

“The evidence contained in page 67 of the the copy of the Appeal Court judgment released on Tuesday and signed by Registrar Jameel Ibrahim Umar, the appellate court upheld the victory of Abba Kabiru Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) as duly elected Governor of Kano state,” he said.

The three member panel of the Appeal Court on Nov. 17, 2023, had dismissed the appeal filed by Yusuf on the basis of his membership status of NNPP.

The appellate court subsequently affirmed Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner of March 25, 2023, governorship poll in Kano.

However, Dederi noted that page 67 of the certified copy of the judgment clearly indicated that the tribunal’s ruling that sacked Yusuf was set aside.

He averred that contrary to what the Judges read to the public in the court room on the 17th November, the written evidence has vindicated Yusuf as the legitimate governor of Kano state.

According to the attorney general, this latest discovery will strengthen their position at the Supreme Court.
