Supreme Court upholds Nasarawa gov’s election

The Supreme Court of Nigeria has upheld the election of the Nasarawa State governor, Abdullahi Sule.

The state election petition tribunal had sacked the governor and declared David Ombugadu, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, the winner of the March 18, 2023 election.

But the appeal court reinstated Sule and held that the tribunal wrongly relied on the evidence of eight of the PDP witnesses, whose statements on oath were not front-loaded alongside the petition.

Reading the lead judgement, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun held that the appeal lacks merit.
