The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved judgment in an appeal seeking to sack Kebbi State Governor, Dr Nasir Idris of All Progressives Congress.
According to the Nation, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who led a five-member panel of the apex court, announced, after lawyers to parties made their final submissions, that judgment was reserved and parties would be notified when it was ready for delivery.
The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last governorship election in Kebbi State, Major General Aminu Bande is by his appeal praying the court to set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which affirmed Idris’ election as earlier done by the election tribunal.
The Court of Appeal in Abuja, in November last year upheld the election of Governor Nasir Idris of Kebbi State.
The three-member panel, in a unanimous judgement, dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Aminu Bande, for lack of merit.
The court, in a judgment delivered by Ndukwe Anyannwu, resolved all the five issues formulated for determination in favour of the governor and against the PDP with its candidate.
