Breaking News: S’Court Confirms Sule As Nasarawa Governor

The Supreme Court has upheld the election of Nasarawa State Governor Abdullahi Sule.

The state election petition tribunal dismissed the governor and proclaimed David Ombugadu, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, the victor of the March 18, 2023 election.

However, the appellate court reinstated Sule, ruling that the tribunal erred in relying on the testimony of eight PDP witnesses, whose oath statements were not front-loaded alongside the petition.

Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, reading the lead judgment, concluded that the appeal is without merit.
