Kebbi Gov: Appeal Court Upholds Idris’ Victory, Dismisses PDP’S Appeal


The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the election of Nasir Idris as the lawfully elected Governor of Kebbi State.

The court in a judgment delivered on Friday evening dismissed the appeal brought before it by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its governorship candidate Aminu Bande for lacking in merit.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Ndukwe Anyannwu, the appellate court resolved all five issues formulated for determination in favour of the governor and against PDP.

Justice Anyanwu held that the allegations of forgery of testimonial brought against the Deputy Governor of the State Abubakar Umar Tafida were not established as required by law.

She also held that the issues of non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act in the conduit of the election could not stand because the appellants failed to prove how the allegations substantially affected the election.

Justice Anyanwu subsequently affirmed the judgment of the Kebbi State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal which had earlier dismissed the petition of PDP and affirmed the election of the governor.
