Gov Yusuf to appeal Kano tribunal’s verdict on guber poll



PDP kicks against Appeal Court verdict on Ganduje’s election, vows to retrieve ‘stolen mandate’

The Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, said on Wednesday night he would appeal the ruling of the governorship election petitions tribunal on the March 18 election in the state.

The tribunal earlier on Wednesday nullified Yusuf’s victory in the election and declared the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Yusuf Gawuna, as the duly elected governor of the state.

In the judgement delivered via Zoom, the panel also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Yusuf and present another one to the APC candidate.

In a post on his X platform, formerly Twitter, the governor described the ruling as a temporary setback and urged the people of the state to remain calm.

Yusuf said he had directed his legal team to appeal the ruling at the appeal court.
