“I am extremely delighted and humbled by the ruling of the Election Petition Tribunal affirming my victory in the 2023 Kaduna State Governorship Elections.
“The tribunal by a split decision of 2:1 accordingly, nullified the election of the governor of Kaduna state, ordered that the Certificate of Return be retrieved and fresh elections be conducted in some polling units in 4 LGAs and the outcome thereof be reckoned with before the declaration of the winner of the governorship election in Kaduna state.
Kaduna State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has on Thursday upheld the March 18 election of Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The three-man panel via Zoom affirmed Sani’s victory on technical grounds, and in a two against one dissenting verdict, ruled against Ashiru for premature filing of the application for pre-hearing.
However, the tribunal dismissed Uba’s other objection that the petition itself was filed outside the legally allowed 21 days after the governorship election.
