JUST IN: Supreme Court fixes date for Kano guber dispute

The Supreme Court has scheduled a hearing on the Kano Governorship Election Petition for Thursday, December 21st.

Governor Kabir Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) is appealing the Appeal Court’s decision that upholds the tribunal’s decision that sack him and proclaim Dr Nasiru Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) the winner of the March 11 governorship election.

A senior counsel in the team of Dr Nasiru Gawuna, Barr. Nuraini Jimoh confirmed to SOLACEBASE on Monday that the apex court has fixed Thursday, December 21, 2023 for hearing of the matter.

Consequently, both courts directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to revoke the Certificate of Return previously issued to Yusuf and reissue it to Gawuna, recognising him as the state’s duly elected governor.

However, Yusuf, who was sworn in as governor in May, approached the apex court to challenge the decisions of the lower courts.
