The Supreme court has reversed the sack of Abba Yusuf as Kano Governor.
Justice John Okoro, who read the lead Judgement said the Court of Appeal was wrong in affirming the decision of the tribunal, which held that Yusuf did not win the majority of lawful votes cast at the Governorship Election.

Justice Okoro held that the tribunal was wrong in deducting the votes accrued to the governor.
