Court rejects Mohammed Abacha as Kano governorship candidate

It was a news yesterday for the Congress for Progressive Change when the Court of Appeal in Abuja reversed the judgment of a Federal High Court and ruled that Lawal Jafar Isa, and not Mohammed Abacha, was the party's governorship candidate for Kano State.

The court also declared that Aminu Bello Masari, the former House of Representatives speaker, was the party's governorship candidate in Katsina State, and not Yakubu Garba Lado whose name was submitted to the Independent National E l e c t o r a l C o m m i s s i o n (INEC).

These are examples of the internal contradictions within the CPC whose unifying factor remains its presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari. Jimi Bada, who read the lead judgment, said that the party's primary election in Kano State was inconclusive and only the party could forward the governorship candidate's name to INEC.
