APC tasks Kano commissioner of Justice on judges inducement allegations


The Kano State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has given 48 hour ultimatum to the Kano State Attorney General, Haruna Dederi to retract or give evidence that the Appeal Court justices that delivered judgement on Kano governorship election were compromised.

It also called on Dederi to mention names of those who allegedly interfered in the judgement or face legal action.

The Kano State APC chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, gave the ultimatum in a petition dated November 23, and addressed to Dederi.

In the petition titled, “Injurious, malicious and false statement against the judiciary and our party on a live television program and a voice note going round in the social media, the APC demand for retraction.”

He recalled that on the 23rd November, 2023, Dederi featured on Channels Television breakfast show, wherein he made damaging and serious allegation of corruption against the Judges of the Kano State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Justices of the Court of Appeal that heard and determined the appeal of Abba Yusuf and New Nigerian People’s Party (NNPP) filed in Appeal No CA/KN/EP/GOV/KAN/34/2023, Yusuf Abba Kabir v APC & 2 Ors.

Abbas added that in the said interview, while commenting on the judgment of the Tribunal that sacked Yusuf, Dederi maliciously and falsely alleged that the decision of the Tribunal to deliver judgment via zoom was because of interference.

He said: “Consequent upon the above, I therefore demand that you come forward and mention the names of those who have hands in interfering with the judgment of the two courts”
