The Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna presided by Justice Daniel O. Kalio has today Thursday, 7th March 2019 confirmed Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf as the bona fide Kano state PDP Gubernatorial candidate in the coming Saturday 9th General Elections.
While delivering judgement, the appeal Court granted all the prayers put forward by the appelant.
The PDP sought a stay of execution on the previous judgement passed by a Federal High Court in Kano on the validity of the party’s October 2nd primaries.
The appeal Court also restrained INEC from removing the name of Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf and other PDP candidates from the list of 2019 contestants.
Responding shortly after the verdict, Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf said he is not surprised with the outcomes from the appeal Court.
“As I always mention, the case mainly concerns our party and an aggrieved member who is working with the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) in the state to remedy the fast growing unpopularity of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.”
Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf also call on his supporters and PDP faithful to keep their hope alive and come out en mass to vote for all People’s Democratic Party’s candidates. [NAN]
