Appeal Court Affirms El-rufa’i’s Election
POLITICS DIGEST – The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna has on Thursday affirmed the election of Governor Nasiru El-rufa’i at the 2019 governorship elections.
In the appeal by the Kaduna governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Alhaji Isa Mohammad Ashiru, against the judgement of the election tribunal, the court noted that the PDP candidate did not provide enough evidence to prove his case.
Ashiru is challenging the declaration of El-Rufai as winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The five-man Justices of the appeal court confirmed their stance on the order.
The five-man panel of justices are made up of UI Anyanwu, HAO Abiru, TY Hassan, BM Ugo and BB Aliyu.
