The candidature of Abba Yusuf, the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been nullified by the Federal high court, Kano, on Monday.
The court cancelled the primaries election that led to Yusuf’s Emergence. Presiding Justice, Allagoa Lewis, ruled that the party did not conduct any primaries hence the candidature of Yusuf was ‘Null and Void’.
