The Supreme Court on Thursday, reserved judgment in an appeal brought before it by Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano state challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal, Abuja which sacked him from office.
After hearing the submissions of counsel in the matter and the processes filed had been adopted, the five-member panel of the apex court led by Justice Inyang John Okoro reserved judgment to a date that would be communicated to parties in the appeal.
There are a total of nine appeals filed in respect of the Kano governorship matter, which the court collapsed into one and reserved judgment.
The Court of Appeal had, on November 17 in a judgment of a three-member panel upheld the decision of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which sacked Governor Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Nasiru Gawuna, winner of the March 18 poll.
The appellate court dismissed the appeal filed by Governor Yusuf based on his membership status in the NNPP.
However, the judgment elicited confusion when on Tuesday, November 21, the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the court judgment surfaced with contradictions as the CTC showed that all the issues were resolved in favour of Governor Yusuf.
