Kano Tribunal sacks former Minister of Interior’s son in Kano
Member representing Sumaila/Takaki Federal Constituency and the son of former Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau has been sacked on Friday by the election petition tribunal in Kano.
Dambazau who came second in the APC primaries after a Federal High Court in Kano disqualified a former presidential aide, Kawu Sumaila in a pre-election suit has been sacked by the tribunal.
The tribunal ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to issue certificate of return to Surajo Kanawa, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Dambazau had sued INEC, APC and Mr Sumaila challenging the nomination of the latter as the candidate of APC.
He told the court through his counsel, Nuraini Jimoh, that Mr Sumaila contested for the Kano South senatorial seat and lost to Kabiru Gaya.
Sumaila had indeed contested the Kano South senatorial ticket of the APC. He lost to a serving senator, Kabiru Gaya.
