Supreme Court dismisses Ombugadu’s appeal, affirms Sule as Nasarawa governor
The Supreme Court on Friday upheld the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State.
A five-member panel of the Supreme Court, led by Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, dismissed the appeal filed by David Umbugadu of the Peoples Democratic Party, challenging Mr Sule’s victory.
In the judgement, Ms Kekere-Ekun said, “The issues in this appeal are resolved against the appellant. The appeal lacks merit and it is hereby dismissed.”
She said the Court of Appeal in Abuja was right to have “set aside the decision of the tribunal” which had declared Mr Umbugadu the winner of the poll.
