Kano New Governor-elect, Nasir Gawuna

Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has ordered the removal of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) and declared Nasir Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the March 18 election.

Nasir Yusuf was declared winner of the State Governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after the conclusion of the election and was given the certificate of return.

TEC gathered that Nasir Gawuna who was the major contestant to Yusuf on the platform of APC congratulated him while the  party proceeded to court.

On Wednesday, the three-man panel ordered withdrawal of certificate of return which INEC presented to Governor Yusuf and directed a certificate of return to be issued to Gawuna.

The court deducted 165,663 votes from Gov Yusuf’s total votes that brought him into power, stating that the 165,663 ballot papers were not stamped or signed and therefore declared invalid.
