Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje has declared that the suit filed against his victory at the last governorship election by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is weighed down by burden of proof.

Reacting on behalf of Gov. Ganduje, his counsel Ibrahim Muktar revealed to newsmen that their camp was not under any pressure to counter allegations filed by the governorship candidate of the PDP, Abba Kabiru Yusuf.

Muktar maintained that “so far, we have nothing to bother ourselves about” because in electoral disputes the petitioners are under the mandate to execute the burden of proof, stressing that the PDP and its gubernatorial candidate presented only 39 out of its over 200 enlisted witnesses.

According to Muktar, they did not come strongly on the issues they raised; they failed to produce the huge number of witnesses.

“So, I feel they did not present the burden of proof, in this case and we decided to respond by bringing only four witnesses,” he added.
