Tribunal to rule on Gov. El-Rufai's election

15 September 2015, 18:06

Kaduna - The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Kaduna, on Tuesday reserved judgment in the case challenging the election of Malam Nasiru El-Rufai as Governor of Kaduna State.

The case instituted by Polycarp Danladi of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), who came third in the April 11 election, sought the tribunal to nullify the election and order for a fresh one.

Danladi had argued that the April 11 election was characterized by over voting and did not comply substantially with the Electoral Act.

On their part, counsel to the first, second and third respondents, Abdulhakeem Mustapha, Mustapha Abubakar and Adetunji Oyeyipo (SAN), respectively, urged the court to dismiss the petition for lack of merit.

The Chairman of the three-man panel, Justice A. A. Adebara after adopting the submissions of the counsels, reserved judgment sine die.

He said that the tribunal would communicate the date set for the judgement through counsels to all the parties.
