Kano: Supreme Court Affirms Gov Kabir Yusuf (NNPP), dismisses APC's suit by fergie001: 12:17pm On Jan 12
The Supreme Court has affirmed Gov Kabir Abba Yusuf (NNPP) as duly elected and returned as Governor of Kano State in the 18th March Governorship poll.

Earlier, the tribunal and lower Court had sacked Gov Kabir Yusuf, and affirmed the petitioner, APC & Gawuna, her Candidate.

Justice Inyang Okoro JSC read the lead Judgement.

He held thus:
"I have found that the decision of the tribunal to deduct 165,616 votes from the Governor's results was based on provisions of the  Electoral Act 2022.

“What is the effect of a ballot paper not having the marks by the Electoral commission?”

“A ballot paper that does not bear INEC mark is not invalid by all purposes.

Also, there is no proof that the said ballot papers were not the one used at the election. Thus the decision of the Court of Appeal affirming the decision of the tribunal ought to be set aside.

"Finally, the lower court wrongly misconstrued its evaluation of the ballot papers. This amounts to perversion.
Accordingly, all the ballot papers are restored to Governor Yusuf.

On the issue of membership and nomination, the Apex Court held:

This court has consistently maintained that the issue of nomination or sponsorship of a candidate for an election is completely an exclusive prerogative of the political party.

Why should the electorate suffer for the iberiberism of INEC?
On the issue of membership and nomination, the Apex Court held: This court has consistently maintained that the issue of nomination or sponsorship of a candidate for an election is completely an exclusive prerogative of the political party.
This is a long settled case.

Before, These are all straight forward cases. Pre elections matters that supreme court already made pronouncement, lawyers wouldn't advise their clients properly .

If a governor doesn't understand pre elections matters I wonder how he intends to manage a state

Pre elections matters should not be entertained at the tribunal, the reason for the tribunal is for only issues that took place only during the elections.

This was never in doubt.. the petitioner was just wasting time.

Even the next election has been decided in favour of the kwankwasiya party.
