The Federal High Court sitting in Gusau, Zamfara State capital, has nullified the election of Dauda Lawan Dare as the Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate for the state in 2023.

The presiding judge, Justice Aminu Bappa, said the court granted all the prayers of the plaintiffs and nullified Dare’s election as the PDP flag.

He said, “The court has granted the prayers submitted in this honourable court by the plaintiffs and hereby rules in their favour.

“The 109-page judgment will be presented to the counsel of both the plaintiffs and the defendants.”

Addressing journalists shortly after the judgment, counsel for the plaintiffs, including the All Progressives Congress, Ibrahim Aliyu, said, “We are happy today as the court has answered our prayers and cancelled the election of Dauda Lawan Dare as the PDP candidate in Zamfara State.

“We had in our prayers urged the court to nullify the election, which was characterised by a series of irregularities and we are happy that our prayers have been granted.”
