KANO State Governorship Election Tribunal has, on Wednesday, ousted Abba Kabiru Yusuf as governor of Kano State.
Yusuf is of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).
The three-man panel, led by Justice Oluyemi Akintan-Osadebay, commenced proceedings virtually a few minutes before 10:00a.m transmitting at Miller Road venue of the tribunal.
The court invalidated Yusuf’s election as Kano State governor and declared candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nasir Gawuna, as the winner of the election.
The court directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the certificate of return earlier issued to Governor Yusuf and issue a fresh certificate to the APC candidate.
