UPDATE: Appeals Court rejects Kwankwaso’s case and validates Datti’s election

The Appeals Court in Abuja has denied Yusuf Umar Datti from the New Nigeria People’s Party while reinstating Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso from the All Progressives Congress in the Kura/Madobi/Garun Malam Federal Constituency elections.

A trio of judges led by Justice Tunde Oyebamiji Awotoye approved Yusuf Datti’s appeal. They argued that the date of appellant’s resignation was incorrectly accounted for as the date of his party’s primaries and incorrectly enforced Article 77 of the Electoral Act, which asserts that no court has jurisdiction on matters concerning party membership.

More details will be provided subsequently.
