The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has reserved its decision in the appeal filed by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf challenging his removal by the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.
The tribunal, which delivered judgment via Zoom on September 20, had declared All Progressives Congress (APC) opponent, Nasiru Gawuna, as winner of the election.
The tribunal determined that 165,663 of Yusuf’s votes were illegitimate because the ballot papers were not signed or stamped by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
Yusuf rejected the verdict and headed to the appeal court.
On Monday, the appeal court reserved judgement in the case. (The Nation)
