Nine candidates that contested  in the  just concluded  House of assembly elections on the platform of the New Nigeria Peoples Party , NNPP have challenged their arch  rival party APC and INEC  in court.

The NNPP candidates have filed  their petitions before the Kano Governorship, National and state House of Assembly  Election Petition Tribunal sitting at Miller road court complex.

The petitioners have also prayed the tribunal to grant  their request for an motion exparte.

The applicants  have asked the court for an  motion exparte  allowing them to  inspect the materials used by INEC, during  the conduct of the state House of Assembly  election, held on March 18th 2023.

Their request also borders on seeking the permission of the court to proceed  with the fulfilment of all necessary court processes in relations to pursuing their matter.

Further the NNPP stalwarts are in court to challenge issues they forsee to be  in violations with the provisions of the  electoral act 2022.

The NNPP candidates who have ignited the court case against INEC and APC  are,    Aminu Saidu Ungogo,  Isiyiaku Ali Danja,  Abdullahi Ali Wudil Manager, Kabiru Getso Haruna,  Mahmud Tajo Gaya,  Abdullahi Iliyasu,  Musa Adamu Ahmad, Aminu Ibrahim Dambatta, Abdu Ibrahim Madaris.
