The Kano State election petition Tribunal has sacked Hon. Shamsudeen Dambazau of the All Progressives Congress [APC], the sone of former Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, as Member of House of Representatives representing Takai/Sumaila Constituency in Kano State.
The Tribunal declared Hon. Idris Surajo Kanawa of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] as authentic winner of the election held in March, 2019.
It, therefore, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC], to issue certificate of return to Surajo Kanawa, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Dambazau did not contest the election but came second in the APC primary election.
He got the mandate when a Federal High Court in Kano disqualified a former presidential aide, Kawu Sumaila, in a pre-election suit.
Dambazau had sued INEC, APC and Mr Sumaila challenging the nomination of the latter as the candidate of APC.
He told the court through his counsel, Nuraini Jimoh, that Mr Sumaila contested for the Kano South senatorial seat and lost to Kabiru Gaya.
Sumaila had indeed contested the Kano South senatorial ticket of the APC. He lost to a serving senator, Kabiru Gaya.
