Tribunal Upholds Victory of NNPP’s Mudassir Zawachiki as Kumbotso Constituency Lawmaker

In a significant ruling, the National/State House of Assembly election tribunal has solidified Mudassir Zawachiki’s position as the representative of Kumbotso Constituency in the Kano State House of Assembly under the banner of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).

The three-man tribunal, presided over by Justice L. B. Owolabi, delivered a unanimous verdict on Monday, dismissing the petition filed by Sagir Abdulkadir-Panshekara of the All Progressives Congress (APC). 

Abdulkadir-Panshekara had contested the outcome of the March 18, 2023 election, alleging various irregularities.

In their judgment, the tribunal found the petitioner’s case to be lacking in merit and insufficient in proving allegations of overvoting, violence, and certificate forgery beyond a reasonable doubt.

Justice Owolabi remarked, “The petitioner failed to substantiate claims of non-compliance with the 2022 electoral act and other irregularities.”

In response to his victory, Mudassir Zawachiki expressed his gratitude, stating to reporters, “I thank Almighty God; the truth has prevailed. I will continue to do my best to justify the confidence reposed in me.” (NAN)
