Reading Time: < 1 minute

Less than one week to the gubernatorial elections, a Federal High Court has sacked Abba K. Yusuf as the Gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano.

Abba Yusuf is a son-in law to former Kano Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso.

The judge, Lewis Allagoa, ruled that the PDP did not conduct governorship primary election in Kano, and declared the candidature of Mr Yusuf null and void.

According to the special adviser on media to Kano State governor, Umar Ganduje, the court has also ruled in favour of Alhaji Ibrahim Al-Amin Little.

This will be a big blow for the PDP, especially Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
