According to him, the verdict did not come as a surprise considering the facts presented before the court.
The court upheld the candidature of Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf as the PDP’s flag bearer for the 2019 governorship election in the state .
A high court sitting in Kano presided over by Justice A. T. Badamasi on Monday, Jan. 14 dismissed the case against Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf, the PDP governorship candidate in the state.
