Tribunal reserves judgement against Sokoto governor

Sa’idu Umar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had filed a petition against the Governor Aliyu over non-qualification and electoral fraud

Umar’s counsel, Aare Olumuyiwa Akinboro, SAN, said there is a discrepancy in Gov. Aliyu’s secondary school and university certificates that were different from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented documents.

Akinboro further stated that no government agency has records of the existence of a “Model Primary School”, the school Gobir claimed issued him a primary certificate.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria, also argued that Aliyu and his deputy abandoned facts as they presented two defense witnesses that were unable to counter or prove otherwise the facts presented by 32 witnesses and the bundle of evidence.

He prayed the tribunal to void Aliyu’s election and declare Umar the winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election.
