The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on National Security and Intelligence, Sha’aban Sharada, on Thursday instituted a legal action before a Federal High Court in Kano, seeking the disqualification of the Kano State Deputy Governor, Nasiru Gawuna, as the 2023 governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress in the state.

In addition, the plaintiff’s lawyer argued that contrary to the provision of the Act and the guidelines of the APC, the state government manipulated the nomination of delegates and compelled them to vote for the anointed candidate.

He also expressed concern over the conduct of the primary that allowed the political appointees of the state governor to cast their votes contrary to Section 84 of the Electoral Act, which disqualified their participation in the primary. Meanwhile, Justice Liman has granted leave for the two motions filed by the plaintiff first seeking to serve the deputy governor by substituted means.

The plaintiff’s lawyer alleged that Gawuna deliberately refused to collect court processes unlike the APC and INEC. The court also granted the plaintiff an order of abridgement of hearing from 30 days to 15 days to enable it to expedite the process.All rights reserved.
