The Court of Appeal in Abuja has invalidated the ward and local government congress by the APC faction led by Senator Ibrahim Shekarau in Kano.
The court has rejected the judgment of an FCT High Court, which declared the Shekarau faction victorious.
The courts’ decisions were delivered on Thursday morning by Justices Haruna Tsammani, B. I. Gafai and J. Amadi.
APC crisis is one of the issues that has been raising dust between the factions long since Shekarau was declared to have defeated Ganduje.
The court has also described the crisis as an internal matter, not a pre-election matter.
Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice for Kano State, Barrister Lawan Musa, said that the judgment of the lower court had been set aside.
Barrister Lawan Musa, “The judgment of the lower court has been set aside for lack of territorial jurisdiction and also because it is an intraparty affair.
The third ground is that even the originating process used to file the case was wrongly done, as such, even the originating process was set aside. All the decisions are unanimous,” he added.
