Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State has filed a cross-appeal at the Court of Appeal sitting in the state capital, asking it to reverse the controversial alternative ruling of the Governorship Election Tribunal, ordering a supplementary poll in the state.

Despite emerging victorious from the main ruling of the tribunal, delivered on September 28, the governor, who contested under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), is contesting the alternative majority ruling of two against one, which created a path for the candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Isah Ashiru to claim victory

Also, in his appeal filed to the court of appeal, Ashiru provided 24 grounds to upturn the dismissal of his petition. He is also seeking an order of the higher court to invalidate Sani’s victory.

The cross-appeal was filed by Governor Sani’s legal team led by a former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bayo Ojo (SAN).

According to Ojo, the tribunal threw the political space into a spin when, in a double majority decision, dismissed Ashiru’s petition for fatal non-compliance with the regulating laws, before proceeding to give an alternative ruling, favouring the petitioners.

He insisted that the dismissal of the petition gave substantive victory to the governor. Ojo further listed 14 grounds of errors committed by the tribunal in arriving at its second conclusion.
