The Supreme Court, on Monday, dismissed the appeal by Abba Kabiru-Yusuf challenging the election of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in the March 9, 2019 governorship election.
In a unanimous judgment by a five-member panel led by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, the apex court held that Kabiru-Yusuf had not demonstrated that the concurrent judgments of the tribunal and Court of Appeal were perverse.
The court, therefore, dismissed the appeal, including the cross appeal for lacking in merit.
And Nigerians have taken to twitter to respond to the Supreme Court’s verdict.
Here are some of the responses:
Forget PDP, Forget APC, who else is happy with the Supreme Court ‘s Judgement that Ganduje still remains as governor. The man is doing a lot of ground breaking developments in kano. It would have been painful if he had lost.

Bar the embarrassing videos, I believe, and I believe this strongly, that Gov. Ganduje is Kano’s best chance going going into the future. The man’s tangible work speaks for him. All fair-minded people can understand why the people voted him back.

SUPREME COURT VICTORY! SO PROUD OF MY BABA. THE EVIL TRIPLETS DID THEIR WORST 😂 THEY KNOW THEMSELVES 😂

The same Supreme Court of Imo just affirmed Ganduje’s election in Kano. There’s a big problem with our judiciary.
