Supreme court reserves judgment in Sokoto governorship appeal

The Supreme court has reserved judgement in an appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Saidu Umar, against the election of the Sokoto State Governor,  Ahmad Aliyu.


Umar and the PDP had alleged that Aliyu and his deputy, Idris Gobir, were not eligible to contest the governorship election. They also claimed that the election was not only marred by irregularities but was also not conducted in substantial compliance with provisions of the Electoral Act 2022.


A five-member panel of the apex court led by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun which presided over the appeal on Wednesday, January 7, adjourned its judgment after listening to the argument from the parties involved in the appeal.
