Judgment has been reserved in the appeal by the Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, challenging his removal by the state Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja reserved judgement on Monday.

Recall that the tribunal nullified Yusuf’s election on September 20 by declaring 165,663 of his votes invalid.

The tribunal held that the ballot papers were neither signed nor stamped by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

It consequently declared the All Progressives Congress candidate, Nasiru Gawuna, winner of the governorship election.

But, dissatisfied with the judgment, Yusuf appealed against the tribunal verdict and urged the court to set aside the judgment.
