In a significant legal development, the Supreme Court of Nigeria has reserved judgment in the high-stakes appeal by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its gubernatorial candidate in Adamawa State, Aisha Dahiru, known as Binani, against the incumbent governor, Ahmadu Fintiri. The appeal challenges Fintiri’s victory in the state’s gubernatorial election.
After facing setbacks at the state election petition tribunal and the Court of Appeal, Binani’s legal team presented their case before a five-member panel led by Justice John Okoro at the apex court. The panel, after careful consideration of arguments from all involved parties, has adjourned the matter, deferring the judgment to a later date.
This development adds another layer of anticipation to an already closely-watched legal battle, with potential ramifications for the political landscape of Adamawa State. As the APC and Binani aim to reverse previous decisions and assert their claims against Fintiri, the Supreme Court’s impending judgment will undoubtedly shape the future trajectory of governance in the state.
