The Supreme Court has fixed Twentieth of January to deliver judgment on an appeal from the governorship election in Kano State.
The apex court fixed the date today at the hearing of the appeal filed by the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the Ninth of March, 2019 governorship election, Mr Abba Yusuf.
The court fixed Monday next week to decide the fate of the appeal after listening to arguments by the counsels representing the appellant and the respondents in the suit.
The respondents are Governor Ganduje, the All Progressives Congress and the Independent National Electoral Commission .
Mr Yusuf was represented at the apex court by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Adegboyega Awomolo.
Earlier, Awomolo asked the court to allow his client’s appeal, including setting aside the order of the lower court and grant all the prayers of the appellant.
He based his argument on the ground that the Returning Officer for the governorship election in Kano unilaterally cancelled the results from 207 polling units.
Counsel to INEC, Ahmed Raji, SAN asked the court to dismiss the appeal on the ground that the allegations were false.
