The panel sacked the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Abba Yusuf challenging the victory of the March 2019 election.

Delivering the ruling, Justice Sylvester Ngwuta held that Yusuf was unable to give cogent reasons to warrant the apex court to set aside both the rulings of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

Both the tribunal and the Appeal Court had ruled in favour of Ganduje.
