Breaking: Supreme Court dismisses SDP’s appeal against Fintiri’s re-election


The Supreme Court has dismissed an appeal by the Social Democratic Party, SDP and its candidate in the Adamawa governorship election, Umar Ardo.

The counsel for the candidate prayed the court to withdraw the case. 

But, the five-member panel led by John Okoro subsequently dismissed the appeal.

Recall that the Court of Appeal in Abuja and the tribunal had dismissed Ardo’s petition challenging the victory of Ahmadu Fintiri.

Meanwhile, Finitiri still has to grapple with the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress, APC and its candidate, Aishatu Dahiru.

Dahiru is seeking to be declared the governor of the state.
