The Court of Appeal in Abuja upheld the Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal’s decision, declaring Nasiru Gawuna of the APC as the rightful winner.
The appeal by NNPP candidate and current Kano State governor, Abba Yusuf, was dismissed.
The initial tribunal ruling on September 20 ousted Yusuf and declared Gawuna winner.
Despite Yusuf’s appeal through counsel Wole Olanipekun, the Court of Appeal affirmed Gawuna’s victory, concluding the legal battle over the March 18 governorship poll.
