Tribunal Sacks Kano NNPP Rep, Declares APC Candidate, Kwankwaso Winner

National and State House of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal in Kano State has nullified the election of Yusuf Umar Datti, the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) candidate for the Kura/Madobi/Garun Malam Federal Constituency.

The tribunal, headed by Justice Flora Ngozi Azingbe, voided Yusuf’s election over his failure to resign his lecturing job at Bayero University, Kano, within 30 days before the election.

Justice Azingbe also held that Datti could not convince the tribunal that he is a member of the NNPP.

The tribunal, therefore, declared Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the rightful winner of the election.
