Kano Gov. Yusuf Reveals Next Action After Appeal Court Defeat

The Governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf, is determined to challenge the recent decision at the Supreme Court to regain his mandate.

Freshreporters News previously reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja, on Friday, nullified Governor Yusuf’s victory and declared Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the March 18 election.

In a broadcast on Friday, Governor Yusuf announced that he has instructed his legal team to contest the Court of Appeal’s ruling at the Supreme Court.

Earlier, Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of APC, stated that the party is ready for Yusuf and the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP) at the Supreme Court.
