The Police in Kano State, on Wednesday, dispersed defiant protesters, who took to the streets of the ancient city over the contradicting Appeal Court judgment.

Information gathered had it that the protest broke out around the Kofar DanAgundi area in Kano Municipal.

There has been tension since a Certified True Copy, CTC, of the Court of Appeal judgment on the state governorship election went viral.

 

Of interest was the fact that the CTC contradicts the judgment that was initially read out in court on Friday.

 

APC’s Reaction

Earlier, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, dismissed concerns about the reported contradictions in the CTC of the judgment which affirmed the judgment of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, declaring its candidate, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna, as the winner of the governorship election.

 

The party’s National Legal Adviser, Prof. Abdulkareem Kana, said every lawyer knows that clerical errors are not strange with regard to such documents.

 

He spoke at a news conference, on Wednesday, in Abuja.

 

“Those of us who are lawyers know that typographical errors often occur in certified true copies of court judgments.

 

“Ordinarily, this wouldn’t have been a confusion if it was probably not a political matter, because it will not be the first time such typographical mistakes will be seen in judgments and being lawyers we are used to a situation like this.

“All that should be done is to merely correct that mistake. The most important thing is the judgment that was read in open court,” said Kana.
