Sanga Rerun: Tribunal Re-affirms Mrs Comfort Amwe Victory

By Israel Bulus, Kafanchan

The Kaduna State House of Assembly tribunal, on Thursday, dismissed the petition brought by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Sanga constituency, Haliru Dangana, against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) member of the House, Comfort Amwe, on the recent rerun election held in the state.

The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Sale Musa Shuaibu who led other judges, Mohammed Shettima and Ayade Michael said the petition against the PDP member of the state House of Assembly lacks merit.

He said the APC witness, Yahaya Pate, was neither in the ward where the election was held nor in the collation Centre.

“He was neither a voter in Sanga and did not participate in the re-run election held in the state, so his submission before the tribunal was not admissible.

The chairman of the tribunal said evidence not supported by facts are worthless.

Culled from Tribune.
