KADUNA: Tribunal sacks Uba Sani, declares gov election inconclusive


The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Kaduna has declared the 2023 governorship election in Kaduna state inconclusive.

The tribunal, during its resumed proceeding on Thursday, declared the election inconclusive and directed that a supplementary election be held by the Independent National Electoral Commission within 90 days.

In a split decision of 2:1, the three-man panel, led by Justice Victor Oviawe, ordered a rerun of the election in 24 polling units in seven wards of four local government areas, where a total of 16,300 registered voters would cast the votes.

The verdict was announced via zoom.

The People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Isah Ashiru, is challenging the election of Uba Sani as the Governor of Kaduna State on the grounds of alleged irregularities and electoral fraud.

He said he won the election.
