The Court of Appeal, Abuja division has removed Musa Ilyasu Kwankwaso of the All Progressive Congress APC, as a member of the House of Representative for the Kura/Madobi/Garun Malam Federal Constituency.

The Court confirmed the election of the New Nigeria Peoples Party NNPP candidate, Yusuf Umar Datti.

Datti was granted an appeal in a three-panel judgment session, led by Justice Tunde Oyebamiji Awotoye.

Justice Awotoye declared that the tribunal was wrong to have counted the date of Umar Datti’s resignation on the date of his party’s primary election.
