Ganduje Knows Fate Tomorrow_ Ada Nkong

The Supreme Court on Tuesday fixed January 20 for delivery of judgment on the Kano State governorship dispute following the March 9, 2019 election in the state.

A seven-man panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Muhammad, fixed the date for judgment after the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the keenly contested poll, Kabir Abba-Yusuf, challenging the victory of the All Progressives Congress’ candidate, Abdullahi Ganduje .
Both the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal had earlier dismissed the PDP’s case and ruled in favour of the APC and the Kano State governor.

The PDP and Abba-Yusuf had approached the Supreme Court praying for an order overturning the lower court’s decision and affirming Abba-Yusuf as winner of the last governorship election in Kano state.
