Kano APC To Tribunal: NNPP Has No Candidate | Declare Gawuna Governor-Elect by etokhana: 9:54pm On Apr 12, 2023
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the Kano governorship election petition tribunal to declare the March 18 poll in the state, inconclusive.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced Abba Kabir-Yusuf, candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), as the winner of the election, having polled 1,019,602 votes to defeat the APC candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, who came close with 890,705 votes.

In a five-volume petition filed on April 9, the APC alleged that Kabir-Yusuf was not qualified to contest the election on the grounds that his name was not on the party’s register submitted to INEC.

The APC also submitted that the NNPP did not score the majority of lawful votes in the election.

The party argued that some of the votes allotted to the NNPP were invalid, noting that if they were removed from the total score, APC would have the highest number of the vote cast.

APC further stated that the Kano resident electoral commissioner (REC) was wrong for declaring Kabir-Yusuf the winner, adding that the margin of lead was not higher than the votes cancelled.


Consequently, the party is praying the tribunal to declare that NNPP had no candidate in the election.

The APC also prayed the tribunal to declare Gawuna the winner of the election.

In the alternative, APC asked the tribunal to declare the election inconclusive.

According to NAN, Gawuna was not joined in the petition.

The respondents in the petition are NNPP, Kabir-Yusuf, and INEC.

In a statement after the election, Gawuna said he has taken the outcome of the election in good faith.

Meanwhile, Abdul Adamu-Fagge, Kano APC legal adviser, told NAN that the court has granted an ex parte motion permitting the party to inspect the governorship election materials in all 44 LGAs of the state.

Clueless APC lies and propaganda. APC will lose their case again in the tribunal in Kano State. Most of the Gandollar lawyers will chop his dollars he sniff to his Agbada clothes more. Engineer Abba Yusuff is the people’s choice. Nothing can stop Yusuff from ruling for the next 4 years in government. Gandollar has been thoroughly defeated in Kano State politics.

It's wrong when APC goes to court with hard facts to proof their case but you applaud when elupee takes APC to court with watery nebulous facts ....... selective amnesia is a bane to objective reasoning.

Submission of party's members names to INEC 30 days to party primary does not invalidate assumption of new members to the party and never prevented such member to partake in the party primary. There is no party of the electoral Act or constitution that bar new members to participate in party primary. The Electoral Act only say submit members names but never made mention the purpose for its submission, whether to bar new members from participating in party primary or otherwise. So that prayer is dead on arrival.
On number of cancelled votes more than the gap between the winner and the 1st runner up. That is tenable but would that still favour the petitioner if a rerun is called? Time will tell.

There is no fact in APC first prayer that says Yusuf is not qualified to be NNPP candidate because electoral Act request for names of party members be submitted to INEC 30 days to the primary. The electoral Act never made mentioned the purpose for the submission of the names 30 days to the election and law doesn't work in vacuum. No single section of the electoral Act or constitution that bar new party entrants from participating in party primary after assumption into the party. I mean no single part of our law stated that.
The only prayer that tribunal may answer is the second one that says, the number of void votes more than the difference between the winner and the first runner up. That one is a valid prayer but that first one is just an academic exercise.

no hard fact in APC case Abeg, it’s lies and propaganda on the media space.

There is no party of the electoral Act or constitution that bar new members to participate in party primary.
