Appeal Court reinstates Adamawa Speaker as PDP senatorial candidate



 Appeal Court reinstates Adamawa Speaker as PDP senatorial candidate

The Court of Appeal, Yola Division has reinstated the Speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly, Aminu Abbas, as the senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the Adamawa Central District.

Justice Mohammed Lawal Abubakar on Friday in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, set aside the judgement of Justice Abdul-aziz Anka of the Federal High Court which sacked Abbas as the PDP candidate.

Recall that during the PDP senatorial primary election conducted on May 23, 2022, Abbas defeated Auwal Bamanga Tukur, D. D. Azura, Mohammed Modibbo, Ibrahim Mustapha, Ibrahim Abubakar and Abdullahi Prambe.

However, Abbas’ victory was challenged at the court through originating summons by Mohammed Modibbo, asking the court to void the primary election on the premise that Auwal Tukur was allowed to participate in the contest while serving as the chairman of the Governing Council of Adamawa State University.

However, Abbas who immediately appealed against the judgment got his ticket restored on Friday.
