The Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has sacked Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf under the banner of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) as the governor of Kano state, declaring the All Progressives Congress winner of the March 18 election.




Yusuf was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the March 18, 2023 governorship election.





The three-man panel on Wednesday ordered the withdrawal of the Certificate of Return which INEC presented to Governor Yusuf and directed a Certificate of Return to be issued to Gawuna.




The court deducted 165,663 votes from Gov Yusuf’s total as invalid votes, stating that the ballot papers (165,663) were not stamped or signed and therefore declared invalid.
