Kano guber: CTC of judgement is out

The CTC was shared on X (formerly Twitter) by Salihu Tanko Yakasai, popularly known as Dawisu, the Kano state Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) gubernatorial candidate in the 2023 election. Dawisu is currently a chieftain of the APC and an ally of Abdullahi Ganduje, the APC national chairman.

He wrote on Tuesday evening, November 21, with accompanying documents:

"The appeal court has distinguished the two cases; Peter Obi and that of Kano APC and NNPP. Pages 64 to 67 explains it with facts to back it up. Membership of a party can indeed be a pre-election issue AND a post-election one. I hope this will put that argument to rest."
