Appeal Says Kano Judgement Controversy Is A Typo Error

The Chief Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Umar Bangari, has cleared the air on the controversies surrounding the judgement delivered by the court on the Kano Governorship Election dispute.

In a reaction, Bangari says what happened in the judgement body was a typo error that did not in any way invalidate or change the findings and conclusion of the court.

The chief registrar, citing Order 23 Rule 4 of the Court of Appeal Handbook which empowers the court to correct any clerical error once detected by the court or any of the parties in the matter,  says the error will be rectified once parties in the matter file formal applications to that effect.

He insisted that contrary to insinuations, the judgement of the court remains valid.

There had been an uproar and series of interpretations into the judgement which upheld the judgement of Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that invalidated the election of Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), as winner of the March 18 Governorship Election.

But in the CTC, the appellate court upheld the issues raised by Governor Yusuf, set aside the judgement of the tribunal and awarded the sum of N1 million cost in his favour against Yusuf Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
