Kano tribunal sacks gov Yusuf, declares APC’s Gawuna winner

The Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has nullified the election of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf who was the Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 18 governorship poll.

Delivering its judgement in the petition on Wednesday, the three-man panel ordered withdrawal of Certificate of return issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented to Governor Yusuf and directed a certificate of return to be issued to Nasir Gawuna, Candidate of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) in the election.

Daily Trust said the court deducted 165,663 votes from Gov Yusuf total as invalid votes, stating that the ballot papers (165,663) were not stamped or signed and therefore declared invalid.

TheNewspad reports that the judgement has elicited mixed reactions among supporters of the two major political parties in the State
