The Drama Unfolds: 🎭

Did you know? 🤔 Despite party membership issues typically being internal, it appears Kabir Yusuf faced some hitches. He wasn’t even listed in the membership register the NNPP submitted to INEC. Shady, right? 🌚

Yusuf, the previous NNPP candidate turned fleeting Kano Governor, received congratulatory messages, including from his APC rival, Nasir Gawuna. But celebrations were cut short as APC proceeded to court. ⚖️

And the outcome? The three-man panel of the tribunal decreed that the certificate of return, previously handed to Yusuf, be transferred to Gawuna. Talk about a plot twist! 🔄

Votes That Raised Eyebrows 🕵🏾‍♀️

  • A whopping 165,663 votes were deduced from Yusuf’s total.
  • Why, you ask? 🤷🏾‍♂️ They were not stamped or signed, making them invalid.

What’s the Buzz?

This groundbreaking verdict has set tongues wagging across Nigeria. While many are applauding the transparency of the tribunal, others are questioning the efficacy of our electoral process. 🗳️
