Kano City, September 20, 2023 — In a stunning turn of events, the Kano State Governorship Election Tribunal has declared Nasir Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the Kano governorship election. This decision nullifies the election victory of the incumbent Abba Kabir Yusuf of the Nigerian National Peoples’ Party (NNPP).
The tribunal’s ruling, delivered today, cited irregularities and electoral malpractice as the basis for overturning the initial results. The tribunal found substantial evidence of electoral misconduct that significantly affected the credibility of the election.
