Governor-Rabiu-Musa-KwankwasoStates and National Assembly Elections Petition Tribunal sitting in Kano, Tuesday dismissed a petition filed by Alhaji Bashir Garba Lado of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the election of Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the All Progressives Congress as Senator representing Kano Central Senatorial District.
Dismissing the petition, the presiding judge, Justice Cornelius Akintayo said the petitioner had failed to establish a prima facie evidence against the respondent, hence the decision to dismiss the case over lack of merit.
He said the request of the petitioner for the tribunal to nullify the election based on the substitution of the name of Abba Yusuf with that of the respondent was untenable.
He said the tribunal has no evidence to declare the election null and void, and therefore, considers the result of the election credible.
Mr. Akintayo said the petitioner had failed to provide genuine evidence to prove that the results of the election did not reflect the conduct of the polls.
The tribunal’s verdict was greeted with jubilation by supporters of the former governor who had thronged the venue for the long awaited judgment.
