Federal High court sacks Adamu Aliero as PDP senatorial candidate ADAMU-ALIERO44474

The Federal High Court in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State, Tuesday, nullified the election of Adamu Aliero, a Ex-Governor of Kebbi State, as the senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Kebbi Central District.

The trial judge, Babagana Ashigar, ruled in favour of Haruna Sa'idu.

Sa'idu argued that he is the bona fide senatorial candidate of the PDP for the Kebbi Central District.

He sued Aliero, the incumbent senator of the district, the PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for conducting a fresh primary for the Kebbi Central Senatorial District.

According to him, the fresh primary contravened the Electoral Act 2022.

Sa'idu argued that he was alive and didn't withdraw from the contest, adding that his name was unlawfully substituted with that of Aliero, who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP after a primary election was conducted.

However, Asghigar observed that when the first primary for the district was held, Aliero was in the APC.

The judge, in spite of that, ruled that based on exhibits 2,21,23,24 tendered before the Court, Sa'idu participated in the first primary, where he was elected as the candidate, having scored the highest votes while the first defendant, Aliero, was still at the ruling party.

"Since the first primary election was not challenged by the 1st defendant, it is in my humble view that the first primary election for Kebbi Central Senatorial district remained authentic.
