BREAKING: Court upholds judgment on nullification of PDP primary election

The Court of Appeal in Sokoto State on Wednesday upheld the judgement that nullified the governorship primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Zamfara State.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that in a unanimous judgement by the panel of judges, Justice Muhammad Shuaibu dismissed the appeal filed by the gubernatorial flag-bearer of the PDP in Zamfara State for the 2023 election, Dauda Lawal, challenging the nullification of his candidature.

Justice Shuaibu said the appeal lacked merit.

Recall that Ibrahim Shehu, a gubernatorial aspirant of PDP in Zamfara state had challenged the emergence of Lawal, saying the poll that produced the latter was marred by irregularities and non-compliance with the PDP guidelines.

He approached a Federal High Court Gusau which subsequently nullified the primary and ordered the PDP to conduct a re-run election within 14 days.

Reacting to Wednesday’s verdict, Ndiana Anaka, a lawyer to the respondents, said the judgement was a victory for democracy and rule of law.
