Another Victory For Governor Alex Otti As Appeal Court Voids Kano High Court Judgement

...Of His Purported Sack After Winning


Barely two weeks after winning at the Abia State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, Governor Alex Otti has secured another victory at the Court.

This is coming as the Appeal Court sitting in Kano state, has dismissed the May 18 judgement given the Kano State Federal High Court, presided by Justice M.N. Yunusa, which purportedly sacked Otti.

Delivering judgement on Friday, the Appeal Court faulted the trial court’s hasty determination of the suit even without joining necessary parties who were the actual targets of the claims in the suit.

The appellate court also awarded one million naira (N1,000,000) cost against the plaintiff.

Journalists gathered that Justice M. N. Yunusa gave the judgement while ruling on a Suit (FHC/KN/CS/107/2023) filed by one Ibrahim Haruna Ibrahim seeking the disqualification of all elected candidates of Labour Party.
