Kano 2023: Appeal Court Sacks Abacha As PDP Candidate

The Court of Appeal sitting in Kano has sacked Mohammed Abacha as the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in 2023 election.

The court on Friday set aside the judgment of a High Court that recognised Abacha as the PDP candidate for 2023 Kano governorship election.

The court also ordered that Sadiq Wali, who was earlier recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission, remained the valid governorship candidate.

Delivering the anonymous judgement, Justice Usman Musale-led three-man panel held that Abacha had no locus standi to challenge the primary election that produced Wali since he never participated in the poll.
