Written by News Desk on January 16, 2024
The Supreme Court, has today, reserved judgment in the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party against the appeal court judgment reinstating the Nasarawa State Governor, Abdullahi Sule.
The five-member panel led by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun adjourned the matter for judgment after listening to the counsel’s arguments on the appeal.
Kekere-Ekun noted that parties would be notified when judgment is ready.
The appellants are, by their appeal, seeking to set aside the November 23, 2023 judgment of the Court of Appeal, which reversed the earlier judgment of the election tribunal, sacking of governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The state election petition tribunal had sacked the governor and declared David Ombugadu, candidate of the PDP the winner of the March 18, 2023 election.
