Court Dismisses PDP Petition Against Katsina APC Rep

 The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal in Katsina State yesterday expelled the request of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the All Progressives Congress (APC) over Mashi/Dutsi Federal Constituency bye-election. The court judge, Justice Raheem Shiyanbola, sitting with Justices Tijjani Yusuf Yakasai, and Haliman Saleeman, said the suit documented by PDP and its banner conveyor at the twentieth May, 2018, bye-election, Nazif Bello Yusuf, needed legitimacy and couldn't be demonstrated by the applicants. The court additionally held that the applicants neglected to demonstrate that the asserted fanciful figures or invented votes were in charge of the triumph of APC hopeful, Mansur Ali Mashi, at the survey. As indicated by the council, the affirmed adulteration of result was not demonstrated while the said wrong calculation of both the two applicants' outcome was insufficient to influence the considerable consistence of the bye-race with the Electoral Act. The candidates, through their lead advise, Barr. Uyi Igunma, had asked the council to pronounce the officeholder individual from the House of Representatives from the voting demographic, Mansur Ali Mashi, as wrongly chose and return Nazif Bello-Yusuf as the victor of the survey. The protection guide drove by Ernest Obunadike anyway encouraged the court to slight the accommodation of the candidates.
