Nigeria’s Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a petition seeking to remove Bauchi State Governor, Mohammed A. Abubakar from Office.
Abdullahi Tanko Orlando had earlier challenged the outcome of the 2015 All Progressives Congress (APC) gubernatorial primaries.
The matter was argued for over two years all the way to the apex court in the country.
In his ruling, the presiding Judge, Justice Utterle maintained among other things that one cannot bring pre-election matters after election.
The judgement of the case ST/854/2015 was delivered in favour of Barrister Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar.
