The personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on broadcast media Mr Shaaban Ibrahim Sharada says he remains the APC candidate for Kano Municipal federal constituency despite a court judgement nullifying his election.
KANO TODAY recalls that a federal high court sitting in Kano has on Tuesday nullified the election of Mr Sharada and confirmed Mr Muntari Ishaq Yakasai as the legitimate candidate.
Mr Sharada said he is challenging the ruling before the court of appeal.
- Kano Municipal Constituency: Court replaces Shaaban Sharada with Mutari Ishaq Yakasai
- Baba Impossible and 3 others pass commissioner screening
He therefore assured his supporters that the APC will hold on to his nomination pending the outcome of the appeal.
Reacting to the judgment, Mr Yakasai expressed joy that justice has finally been done by confirming him as the duly elected candidate of the APC.
Mr Yakasai who was recently sworn-in as commissioner in the administration of Mr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje added that he is ready to face all challenges to actualize his mandate.
