The Court of  Appeal, sitting in Abuja, has upheld the tribunal ruling that sacked the Kano State governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf.

The tribunal removed the New Nigerian Peoples Party's (NNPP) Yusuf as Kano's number one citizen on 20 September 2023.

In its judgment, the lower court ruled that 165,663 of Yusuf's votes were  invalid because the ballots were unsigned and unstamped by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The governor’s votes were then reduced to 853,939 while those of Nasir Ganuwa, his All Progressives Congress (APC) rival, remained at 890,705.

Yusuf had rejected the tribunal verdict, which he described as “unfair” and “a miscarriage of justice”, and headed to the appeal court.
