The Supreme Court has affirmed Gov Dauda Lawal-Dare (PDP) as duly elected and returned as Governor of Kano State in the 18th March Governorship poll.

The tribunal had unanimously upheld INEC’s declaration and return of Lawal-Dare following the petition of APC’s Bello Matawalle.

However, reading the lead Judgement, Justice Sybil Nwaka-Gbagi JCA of the Appeal Court ordered a re-run election in several wards in 3 LGAs.

Dissatisfied with the outcome, Gov Lawal-Dare approached the Apex Court praying the reversal of the judgement of the Appeal Court.

“The decision of the Court of Appeal has no evidential foundation.

“The judgement of the Court of Appeal delivered in November is set aside. The order setting aside the appellant’s election is set aside. And the election of the Appellant is upheld, Agim JSC held.
