By Georges Macnobleson
The Court of Appeal, sitting in Sokoto, has sacked the senator, representing Sokoto South, Abubakar Tambuwal and House of Representatives member, representing Bodinga/Dange Shuni/Tureta Federal Constituency, Aliyu Shehu. Both Senator Tambuwal and Hon. Shehu are of the All Progressives Congress.
The court also ordered the return of the PDP candidates, Ibrahim Danbaba for Senate and Balarabe Kakale for House of Representatives.
The PDP candidates had filed appeals against the judgment of the Election Petitions Tribunal, which had upheld elections of Senator Tambuwal and House member, Shehu.
Delivering the judgment on Wednesday, Justice Federich Oho, said Danbaba and Kakale's appeals succeeded.
