The judiciary in Nigeria appears to be completely sliding to golgotha following the latest discovery made in the judgement of the appeal court which sacked the governor of Kano State, Abba Yusuf from office.

VerseNews reports that contrary to its controversial pronouncement affirming the judgement of the Kano governorship election petition tribunal last week Friday, the certified true copy (CTC) of the court of appeal ruling however revealed that the appellate court had set aside the judgement of the lower tribunal.

The court of appeal had during its judgement upheld the verdict of the tribunal, declaring APC candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, as winner of the governorship election in the state.

But when the certified true copy of the judgement was released by the court on Tuesday, a number of contradictory declarations in the judgement according to Daily Nigerian was observed.

The appellate went further to award the N1,000,0000 cost in favour of the NNPP and against the APC as against its Friday pronouncement.

In one instance, the appellate court declared “I will conclude by stating that the live issues in this appeal are hereby resolved in favour of the 1st respondent (APC) and against the appellant (Governor Abba Yusuf)”, but went further to contradict itself in another sentence.

The court said, “In the circumstances, I resolve all the issues in favour of the appellant (NNPP) and against the 1st respondent (APC).”

The court further shot itself on the foot, declaring “Therefore, I find no merit in this appeal which is liable to be and is hereby dismissed.”

But in the final line of the judgement, the court set aside the judgement of the tribunal, which sacked the governor.

“The judgment of the tribunal In Petition No.: EPT/KN/GOV/01/2023 between: ALL PROGRESSIVES CONGRESS (APC) v. INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION & 2 ORS. delivered on the 20th day of September, 2023 is hereby set aside,” the CTC of the judgement read.

Recall that the Kano State governorship election petitions tribunal on September 20 sacked the governor and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Nasiru Gawuna, winner of the March 18 governorship poll.

Not satisfied with the lower tribunal’s decision, the governor, through his counsel Wole Olanipekun, asked the appellate court to set aside the judgment of the tribunal.

But the court of appeal in a unanimous ruling on Friday said the governor was not a valid candidate in the March 18 gubernatorial election.
