The Kaduna State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has upheld the re-election of Gov. Nasiru El-Rufai, a candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 9 poll in Kaduna State.

The tribunal in its ruling on Monday in Kaduna dismissed the petition filed by Alhaji Isah Ashiru, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 9 election.

Justice Ibrahim Bako, Chairman of the three-member tribunal, held that the petitioners did not provide substantial evidence to support their petition.

Bako said: “The petitioners have not provided substantial proof before this Tribunal that will support all that they alleged in their petition.

“The petitioners failed to provide proof that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was wrong in its declaration that Gov. Nasiru Ahmed El-Rufai was duly elected.

“This Tribunal, therefore, dismisses the Petition filed by the PDP and its candidate, Alhaji Isah Ashiru, against the decision of INEC that returned of Malam Nasiru El-Rufai, candidate of the APC, as duly elected in the March 9 election in Kaduna state.’’
