Supreme court upholds election of Governor Ganduje


The election of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of the All Progressives Congres (APC) as the Governor of Kano State, has been upheld by the Supreme Court.

The petition filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abba Kabir Yusuf was struck out by seven-man panel of the court who unanimously held that it lacked merit.

Delivering the lead judgement, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta stated that the petitioner failed to provide cogent reason for the apex court to set aside the judgement of the two lower courts (election tribunal and Court of Appeal) which upheld Ganduje’s election.
