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.
