In Kano State’s Kura/Madobi/Garun Malam Federal Constituency election, the Court of Appeal in Abuja has sacked Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and reinstated Yusuf Umar Datti of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Justice Tunde Oyebamiji Awotoye, heading a three-member panel, determined that Datti’s appeal had merit and granted it.

All Nigeria Latest News reported that the panel additionally stated that the tribunal made an error by including the date of the appellant’s resignation in the tally on the day of his party primary, adding that Section 77 of the Electoral Act was misapplied as the issue of membership of a political party is an internal affair, which no court has jurisdiction on.
