But during the court judgement delivered on Friday at the court room in Abuja the appeal court dismissed the appeal filed by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf.

Other details are as follows

A certified copy of Appeal court Judgement on Kano state Governorship election has affirmed the victory of Abba Kabiru Yusuf as duly elected Governor of Kano state.

In the fresh revelation as indicated in the written judgement, the Court of Appeal, set aside the judgement of the Kano election petition tribunal for lacking in merit.

The evidence contained in page 67 of the the copy of the Appeal court judgement released on Tuesday and signed by Registar Jameel Ibrahim Umar, appellate court upheld the victory of Abba Kabiru Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party NNPP as duly elected Governor of Kano.

The three member panel of the appeal court, on Friday 17th November 2023 had dismissed the appeal filed by Governor Yusuf on the basis of his membership status.

The appellate court subsequently affirmed Nasiru Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress APC as winner of March 25th, 2023 Governorship poll in Kano.

Addressing journalists Tuesday evening, Kano state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Haruna Dederi said page 67 of the certified copy of the judgement clearly indicated that the tribunal’s ruling that sacked Governor Yusuf was set aside.

Barrister Dederi insisted that contrary to what the Judges read to the public in the court room on the 17th November, the written evidence has vindicated Yusuf as legitimate Governor of Kano state.

It could be recalled that the national leadership of the NNPP has cried out yesterday over the inability of the Appeal Court to provide them with certified true copy of the judgment four days of delivery.

As a result, the court has exposed itself by providing a confusing judgement different from what was red during the delivery of the judgement last Friday in Abuja

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar (RIGHT) after meeting former President Muhammadu Buhari

This afternoon, June 22, 2024, Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections and former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was seen at the Daura residence of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Nigerian media reported the visit , captioning pictures of Atiku as paying Sallah homage to the former two-term President of Nigeria, who handed over to President Tinubu on May 29, 2023.

However, an impeccable source privy to the meeting between Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and former President Muhammadu Buhari disclosed that the PDP Presidential candidate informed President Buhari of his intention for a merger with other political contenders ahead of the 2027 Presidential elections.

The source told NIGERIAN TRACKER that former President Muhammadu Buhari encouraged Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to proceed with the merger talks, noting that it would strengthen democracy. President Buhari reportedly told Atiku that it was similar merger talks that helped the APC wrest power from the PDP in 2015.

Before leaving the Daura residence, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar hailed former President Muhammadu Buhari for playing the role of an elder statesman.

Those accompanying the former Vice President included Senator and former Governor of Sokoto State, Sen. Aminu Tambuwal, and former Governor of Adamawa State, Bindo Jibrilla, among others.

During the 2023 Presidential election, Atiku came second after President Bola Ahmad Tinubu, which many political analysts view as a failure on the part of the opposition to merge and defeat the APC.

Those seen as potential allies for Atiku Abubakar are his competitors in the 2023 general elections, namely Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Alhaji Aliko Dangote greeting Emir Sunusi II

On Tuesday, June 18th, some social media pages were inundated with pictures showing that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, visited Emir of Kano Muhammad Sanusi II.

The pictures posted by several social media platforms show Alhaji Aliko Dangote kneeling down and offering his traditional greetings to the Emir of Kano.

However, a fact check by Nigerian Tracker and information gathered from palace sources reveal that Alhaji Aliko Dangote never visited the palace on that date.

Another palace source told this newspaper that on the day the picture was posted, Alhaji Aliko Dangote supposedly visiting Emir Sanusi, the Emir did not even hold court throughout the day.

Nigerian Tracker further investigated and found that the picture showing Alhaji Aliko Dangote kneeling before Emir Sanusi II was actually taken around May 2019, which means it was five years ago, a year before the dethronement of Emir Sanusi on March 9, 2020.

Therefore, there is no truth to the claim that Alhaji Aliko Dangote visited Emir Sanusi II on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.
