Appeal Court Upholds El-Rufai’s Victory



The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna State has Thursday affirmed Governor Nasir El -Rufai of Kaduna State’s victory during the February 23 governorship election in the State .

The appellate court upheld the judgement of the election tribunal after it dismissed the petition of the People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Isa Ashiru, for lacking in merit.

Ashiru, who was dissatisfied with INEC’s declaration, had asked the tribunal to cancel a total of 640,161 votes that were allegedly allocated to the APC and PDP through wrong or double entry on the result sheets by INEC .

The Appellate Court aligned with the tribunal judgement which ruled that the PDP candidate did not have substantial evidence of massive rigging and other electoral irregularities leveled against the governor during the elections.
