The Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, and two of his predecessors have arrived at the Supreme Court in Abuja.
Naija News reports that Sule, Abdullahi Adamu and Umaru Tanko Almakura arrived at the apex court ahead of the commencement of the ruling on the governorship election appeal in the Nasarawa governorship election.
The Supreme Court has scheduled judgment for today in four appeals filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last governorship election in Nasarawa State, Emmanuel David Ombugadu.
The appellants are seeking to set aside the November 23, 2023 judgment of the Court of Appeal, which reversed the earlier judgment of the election tribunal, sacking of Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Court of Appeal had, in its judgment, held that evidence before it established that the tribunal relied on legally inadmissible evidence to void Sule’s election and declare Ombugadu as the winner of the governorship election held on March 18.
Recall that the apex court reserved judgment in the appeal filed against the electoral victory of Governor Sule of Nasarawa State.
Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, who led a five-member panel of the apex court, made the ruling on Tuesday, January 16, 2023, after lawyers to parties made their final submissions.
The judge ruled that the judgment was reserved, and parties would be notified when it was ready for delivery.
