A’Court Reacts To Kano Gubernatorial Conflicting Judgement

The Chief Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Umar  Bangari, on Wednesday, said there was no contradiction in the court’s judgment on the Kano State governorship election.

 

There had been several interpretations of the judgment following a discrepancy between what was read out in the open court and the contents of the Certified True Copy of the judgment.

 

At the open court,  the three-member panel led by M. A. Adumein upheld the judgment of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which sacked Governor Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party.

 

However,  in the concluding part of the CTC, it read that the issue was resolved against the APC and its candidate.

 

The New Nigeria Peoples Party, during a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, accused the Court of Appeal of changing the judgment after the judges had concluded deliberations on the matter.

However,  reacting to the controversies, Bangari said what happened in the judgment’s Certified True Copy was a clerical error.

He noted that that did not in any way invalidate or change the findings and conclusion of the court on the matter.
