Appeal Court declares Binani APC Governorship candidate In Adamawa

The Appeal Court in Yola, Adamawa, has declared Sen. Aishatu Binani as the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the state.

The court presided over by Justices Tani Hassan, Mistura Bolaji-Yusuf and James Abundaga respectively set aside the judgment of a Federal High Court which nullified the governorship primary and declared that APC has no candidate for the 2023 governorship election.

The justices ordered that the name of Binani be submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the flag bearer for the election

The Voice Media Trust (VMT NEWS) report that on Oct. 14, a Federal High court sitting in Yola, had nullified the governorship primary that produced Binani, declaring that the party had no candidate for the forthcoming governorship elections.

The case was filed by Malam Nuhu Ribadu, a former Chairman of the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), challenging the APC governorship primary over alleged irregularities, and demanding for fresh primaries.

Binani had scored 430 votes to defeat her closest opponent, Ribadu, who polled 288 votes in the election.

VMT NEWS reports that the Federal High Court judge, in that ruling, by Justice Abdulaaziz Anka held that the APC had no candidate for the 2023 governorship election in the state.

Anka also ordered Binani, who was earlier declared winner of the election to stop parading herself as the party’s candidate for the 2023 governorship election.

The court held that the APC governorship primary election held on May 26, was marred with irregularities such as over voting, and non compliance with the 2022 Electoral Act and the party’s constitution.
