Kano Guber: Tribunal fixes Wednesday for judgement


The Kano state governorship election petition tribunal has fixed Wednesday, September 20 to deliver judgment in the case filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) against Abba Yusuf, governor of the state.

The tribunal announced the date in a hearing notice signed by the secretary and issued to parties in the suit on Monday.

Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), was declared the winner of the March 11 governorship poll.

He polled 1,019,602 votes to defeat his close rival, Yusuf Gawuna of the APC, who got 890,705 votes.

Ganuwa and his party filed a petition to challenge Yusuf’s victory.

There has been tension in the state since the tribunal reserved judgment as members of the NNPP have organised prayers to ask God for help.

During a prayer session organised by supporters of the ruling NNPP on Thursday, Adamu Aliyu, who was at the time the commissioner for land in Kano, issued a threat to the judges of the governorship election petition tribunal.
