The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has reportedly called on the concerned lawyers, to return copies of its judgement on the appeal of the Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
A former Presidential Aide to former President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, who made this known in a post on his official X handle on Wednesday, noted that the development came, following the confusion trailing the Appeal Court judgement on the Kano State Governorship election.
According to him, the court asked the concerned lawyers to return copies of its judgment for corrections.
Premium Politics reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja had last week, sacked Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party, noting that the governor was not qualified to contest for the March 18 governorship election in the state.
The appellate court held that Yusuf, who contested under the platform of the NNPP, was not a member of the party during the election.
A three-man panel of the justices of the court however declared Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressive Congress, winner of the election.
Meanwhile, the Certified True Copies of the judgement circulating on social media triggered confusion as it indicated that the court upheld Yusuf’s victory.
Reacting to the development through his post on X, Bashir said the Appeal Court has commenced moves to correct errors in the CTC.
His post reads, “The Court of Appeal has asked lawyers to return the copies of the Kano governorship election ruling for correction.
“The court will correct the obvious errors in the released judgment and stand by its Friday pronouncement that Nasir Gawuna is the legitimate winner of the election”.
