Kwankwaso Ask Supreme Court To Review Kano Gov'ship Election Ruling

Former Senator and Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, has urged the Supreme Court to review its ruling on the Kano State Governorship election.

Naija News reports that the Supreme Court had affirmed the election of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje as the duly elected governor of Kano State.

Delivering judgment, the seven-man panel of Justices of the Supreme Court upheld Ganduje’s election and dismissed the appeal by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Abba Yusuf.

The apex court by its ruling in a unanimous decision by the panel, has now laid to rest, all matters surrounding the 2019 governorship election in Kano State.

Kwankwaso, who is the PDP leader in Kano, led some members of the party from the state to the national secretariat of the opposition party, asking the leadership of the PDP to support the call for a review of Kano governorship election.

This was disclosed in a statement on Wednesday by the Media Adviser to Abba Yusuf, Ibrahim Adam.

Kwankwaso appealed to the national working committee of the PDP to facilitate the process of the supreme court’s review on the Kano election case.

He lamented that Kano people were “robbed of their mandate through voter disenfranchisement and manipulation of judicial processes”.
