In a significant development, the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Kano has officially declared Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the rightful winner of the Kano governorship election.
This pivotal ruling came following the tribunal’s decision to invalidate certain votes that had been attributed to the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) candidate and incumbent Kano Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf. The Presiding Judge, Justice Oluyemi Akintan Osadabey, emphasized that the margin of votes in favor of the NNPP candidate was insufficient to secure victory for Governor Yusuf.
The tribunal further highlighted that a portion of the votes initially credited to Governor Yusuf were found to be invalid. Additional details regarding this significant development will be provided as they become available.
