The Appeal Court sitting in Kaduna presided by Justice Daniel O. Kalio has today Thursday, 7th March 2019 cleared Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf as the authentic Kano state PDP Gubernatorial candidate in the coming Saturday 9th General Elections.
While delivering judgement, the appeal Court granted all the prayers put forward by the appelant.
The PDP sought a stay of execution on the previous judgement passed by a Federal High Court in Kano on the validity of the party’s October 2nd primaries.
The appeal Court also restrained INEC from removing the name of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf and other PDP candidates from the list of 2019 contestants.
Responding shortly after the verdict, Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf said he is not surprised with the outcomes from the appeal Court.
“As I always metion, the case mainly concerns our party and an agrieved member who is working with the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) in the state to remedy the fast growing unpopularity of Gov Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.”
