Nasarawa: Court of Appeal delivers judgment on Gov. election today

The Court of Appeal, sitting in Abuja, will today, Thursday, deliver judgment in the appeal arising from the Nasarawa State governorship election.

This is contained in a notice issued by the court yesterday.

The State election petition tribunal had earlier sacked the State governor, Abdullahi Sule, who was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).

According to INEC, Sule polled a total of 347,209 votes to defeat his closest opponent, who secured 283,016 votes.

Recall that the tribunal, in a split decision on October 2, sacked Sule, of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) and declared David Ombugadu, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the election.

However, Sule, through his counsel, Wole Olanipekun (SAN), approached the appellate court, asking it to upturn the judgment of the tribunal.
