The Supreme Court has set aside the lower courts’ decisions sacking the Kano state Governor, Yusuff Abba.
The tribunal had set aside Governor Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party victory after declaring 165,663 of his votes invalid. The tribunal held that the deducted votes were from ballot papers that were neither stamped nor signed.
He then approached the appeal court for redress. The appeal court upheld the tribunal’s decision and faulted the lower court for not disqualifying the governor.
The Supreme Court has, however, on Friday, reinstated the governor.
