S’Court Dismisses PDP’s Appeal Against Nasarawa Gov Sule 

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the March 18, 2023 governorship election, Hon. David Ombugadu, against the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State.

The apex court, in a judgment delivered by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, held that the appeal was incompetent and lacking in merit.

The five-member panel subsequently upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which had in November voided and set aside the judgment of the Nasarawa State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in favour of Governor Sule.

The appellants had approached the apex court to set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal, which had nullified the judgment of the tribunal which declared Ombugadu the authentic winner of the governorship poll in the state.

But the apex court, in a unanimous judgment, held that the decision of the lower court was in order in affirming the election of Governor Sule.
