The Court of Appeal in Abuja has scheduled a pivotal hearing on Wednesday, 15th November, in response to the appeal lodged by Nasarawa Governor, Abdullahi Sule, from the All Progressives Congress.
This legal action challenges the tribunal’s verdict that led to his removal as governor.
Nasarawa election tribunal, in a split decision, invalidated Governor Sule’s election, proclaiming David Ombugadu from the People’s Democratic Party as the rightful winner of the March 18 election.
A notice regarding the hearing in the suit “Between Sule Audu Alhaji VS Dr Emmanuel David Ombugadu & 3 ors Appeal NO CA/ MK/EP/GOV/NS/30/2023” reveals that the proceedings will take place on 15/11/2023 at the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, commencing at 9:00 am.
This sets the stage for a crucial legal showdown that could reshape the state’s political future.
