BREAKING: Tribunal affirms Sani as Kaduna Gov, dismisses Ashiru, PDP’s petition

The Kaduna State Gubernatorial Election Petition Tribunal has upheld the election of Governor Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while dismissing the petition filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

The judgment, which took five and half hours, saw the three-man panel of judges led by Justice Victor Oviawie, and Justice K. Damlat and Justice N. Nonye, struck out the petition because the preliminary notice was filed out of time after the 21- day prescribed by the constitution, and was deemed to have been abandoned.

Giving the split judgment, Justice Victor Oviawie said the preliminary notice was filed outside the 21 days prescribed by the constitution from the day when the result of the election was declared, adding that the petition was deemed to be abandoned.

His ruling was also supported by Justice N. Nonye, while Justice K. Damlat disagreed noting that the preliminary notice was properly filed and was not abandoned.
