Governor Sule wins Supreme Court battle

The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Governor Sule Abdullahi of Nasarawa State with the dismissal of the petition instituted against his election by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its governorship candidate, Emmanuel David Ombugadu.

The court upheld the Governor’s election on the ground that the allegations made against it were not established.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, in a lead and unanimous judgment, said the petition of PDP and Ombugadu could not be attached with any probative value.

The apex court dismissed the allegations of unlawful calculations of votes by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, on the reason that the allegations could not stand the credibility examination.
