Appeal Court Sacks PDP Governor

The Court of Appeal, sitting in Abuja, has nullified the election of Zamfara state governor, declaring the March 18, 2023 State governorship election inconclusive.

A three-member panel of the Appellate Court unanimously annulled the victory of Dauda Lawal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conclude the election in three local government areas of the State in order to determine the eventual winner of the election.

The election is to be conducted at Maradun Local Government Area of the State and in other areas where elections were either cancelled or did not hold at all.

The Court held that the use of IREV information to declare Lawal as governor in the absence of polling units results were unlawful, illegal and unconstitutional.
