Governor Abba Yusuf rejects Tribunal ruling, sets out for Appellate court 



Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf, who was on Wednesday sacked as the governor of Kano State has rejected the judgement of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which sacked him and declared the All Progressives Congress gubernatorial candidate, Nasir Gawuna, as the victor of the March 18 gubernatorial election. 

This disclosure was contained in a press statement released by Governor Yusuf in Kano State. 

According to the statement, he asserted that he polled a total vote of 1,019,602 in the March 18, 2023 election to come out tops in the gubernatorial election, surpassing the second place with a margin of 128,897.  

He noted that the judgement of the tribunal had had some identifiable errors and misapplication of the law that his legal team pointed out. Considering this, Governor Yusuf has instructed his legal team to appeal the tribunal verdict at the appeal court. 

He, however, asked that the people of Kaduna State remain calm, and law-abiding and should not take laws into their hands.
