The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld the election of Nasir El-Rufai as Governor of Kaduna State.
Recall that the Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna State had in November dismissed an appeal by Isah Mohammed Ashiru of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, challenging the verdict of the election petitions tribunal which affirmed El-Rufai’s victory at the 2019 gubernatorial election in the state.
The court had ruled that El-Rufai was duly re-elected as Governor of Kaduna State.
Recall that the PDP and its candidate, Isah Ashiru, had asked the court to set aside the decisions of the Court of Appeal.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Wednesday affirmed a decision of the Court of Appeal which dismissed the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the election of Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.
