Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the Supreme Court affirmed Yusuf as the duly elected governor of Kano state.

Justice John Okoro who read the lead judgement held that the Appeal Court was wrong in its ruling to have deducted 165,616 votes from the votes secured by the Kano governor.

The apex noted that the lower court erred by asserting that Governor Yusuf was not a member of the NNPP.

According to the Supreme Court, the issue of nomination is a pre-election matter.
