Al-Amin alleged that the PDP during the primary election “sidelined and booted him out” of the race.

Delivering a ruling, Justice Lewis Alagua, nullified the election on the premise that the party had no incontrovertible reason to deny the plaintiff participating in the primary election because he formally brought his expression and nomination form.

Alagua also held that denying the plaintiff the right to participate in the primary election, contravened the provision of the Electoral Act. He ordered for a valid fresh primary election before the forthcoming governorship election on March 9 in the country.

Earlier, the plaintiff, Ali-Amin, prayed the court to nullify the election on the ground that it was grossly flawed, given the manner he had been sidelined with no justifiable reasons to legitimize such an act.

He said he was blatantly denied participation in the primary election, in spite of the fact that he had brought his expression and nomination form.

It was, however the contention of the plaintiff that there was also the need for the court to interpret whether the party could go ahead to field a candidate for the election in Kano State without conducting the primary election or not.

In his submission, counsel to the plaintiff, Barrister Kabir Usman said the judgement effected had become legally expedient, since his client had been denied the right to contest the election. He said with the cancellation of the primary election, the governorship slot is now vacant, pending when a fresh and valid primary election is held.

In his remarks, counsel to PDP, Bashir Yusuf said the verdict did not affect Abba Kabir-Yusuf as a candidate but PDP as a party pointing out they would appeal against the judgement.

Atiku demands apology and N500m from Buhari’s aide for Linking him to terrorists Gcek9ktTURBXy9lZDlhNzlhYi1jZjg2LTQ4NjQtOTY3Ni1lYjc1NzQxODJjMmYuanBnkpUDAB3NAwDNAbCTBc0DFM0BvIGhMAE

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has asked Lauretta Onochie, an aide of President Muhammadu Buhari, to tender apology and pay him N500 million for linking him to terrorists.

This was contained in a letter by Mike Ozekhome, lawyer to the presidential candidate.

On May 7, Onochie had tweeted that the former vice-president was on a United Arab Emirates (UAE) watch list.

“Atiku on UAE watchlist- Security sources,” Buhari’s aide tweeted.

“Security operatives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are keeping a close tab on a former Nigerian Vice Pres Atiku Abubakar who has been in the Middle East nation for several weeks now What is he doing there?

“Me: Shopping for Terrorists?”

In the letter, Ozekhome said: “Your odious publication is clearly also aimed at rubbishing our client’s image and reputation,” the letter read.

“It has caused him national and international backlash and embarrassment and done incalculable damage to him.

“Your publication has also caused our client, in the eyes of reasonable members of the public, unspeakable odium, obloquy, hatred, ridicule and psychological trauma.

“He has thereby been subjected to the shame and infamy of being viewed by members of the public as not only corrupt, but as a terrorist and sponsor of terrorism.

“Numerous telephone calls, emails, visits, letters and private social media chats by his family members, friends, political and business associates, and international statesmen and women in the last few days attest to the alarm and serious concerns generated by your false publication.”

2019 elections: How Facebook exposed APC, Buhari as real enemies of Nigeria – PDP alleges Kola Ologbondiyan 1

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday said Facebook revelation detailing the alleged devious manipulations and engineering of disinformation in the general by President Buhari’s handlers and All Progressives Congress (APC) further exposes them as “schemers and real enemies of our democracy and national cohesion.”

The party said the revelation exposed APC as a fraudulent and violent-loving party, whose divisive activities were now directly threatening the security stability of Nigeria.

A statement by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan said: “Indeed, the Buhari Presidency and the APC should hide their faces in shame as Nigerians have seen that their professed sanctimony and ‘holier-than-thou’ claims are mere masquerading.

“Our party notes that there are more damning revelations against the APC, not only on its rigging of the general election, but also on how it is working against our nation, which will come to light at the appropriate time.

“The APC, which engaged in manipulation to foist itself, will do anything, no matter how vile, to sustain itself in office, not minding the social, economic and collateral damages such could cause our dear nation.

“Since the Facebook revelation, the Federal Government and the Presidency have suddenly gone dumb, having been exposed and shown in their true colours. However, the PDP holds to the eternal truth that no matter how lies appears to prevail, truth is bound to triumph at the end of the day.”
