APC drags INEC, NNPP to court over Kano gubernatorial election outcome

By Abdulgafar Oladimeji

The All Progressive Congress, APC has directed its legal team to seek legal redress against the declaration of Abba Kabiru Yusuf  of the NNPP as the winner of the 18th March governorship election in Kano state.

 

The party spokesman, Ahmed Aruwa disclosed that  the Kano  APC faults the results declared by INEC, which confirmed the  candidate of the NNPP as the winner of the governorship polls.

He added that the declaration of the winner of the elections as announced by INEC contravenes the provisions of the laws regulating the overall conduct of the elections.

 

He alleged that INEC  had acted in contrast to  the provisions of the  electoral rules  by declaring Abba  Gida Gida as he is fondly known as the governor elect of the state.

Aruwa disclosed that the state  party hierarchy l has directed  its legal organ  to proceed to challenge the outcome of the elections before the state governorship election petition tribunal  sitting at Miller road court complex.

He said though the APC  gov candidate Nasiru Gawuna  has congratulated the governor elect,  in contrary the APC  is of the strong conviction that the  declaration exercise  is in violation of the laid down electoral laws, which  prompted the decision by APC  to proceed in search for legal  redress before the court  with  competent jurisdiction..
