0 476

On Friday, the Court of Appeal in Kano State overturned a High Court decision that had recognized Muhammad Abacha as the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for governor in Kano State.

However, the Appeal Court ruled that Sadiq Wali, who had previously been acknowledged by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), should continue to serve as the PDP’s legitimate candidate for governor in the state.

The appellate court ruled that the law is clear and that the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP can oversee a party’s gubernatorial primary elections in a unanimous decision from the three-person panel that was read by Justice Usman Musale.

The panel also stated that Abacha lacked locus standi to contest the primary election held by the NEC that resulted in Wali because he didn’t vote in it.

Recall that the PDP in Kano State had experienced a leadership crisis that resulted in the emergence of Abacha and Wali as rival candidates for governor.
