JUST IN: Gov Dauda Lawal of Zamfara id Validly Elected-Supreme Court Rules
The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Governor Dauda Lawal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the validly elected Governor of Zamfara State.
The Court in a judgement read by Justice Emmanuel Agim set aside the ruling of the Court of Appeal which earlier removed Governor lawal, describing the Appeal Court judgement as “perverse”
The court ruled that the Appeal court judgement lacked foundation and therefore cannot stand.
“The decision of the Court of Appeal has no evidential foundation.
“The judgement of the Court of Appeal delivered in November is set aside. The order setting aside the appellant’s election is set aside. And the election of the Appellant is upheld.” Justice Agim ruled.
