A son of a late Head of State, late General Sani Abacha, Mohammed, has filed two notices of appeal before the Supreme Court requesting some reliefs.
Through his counsel, Reuben Atabo (SAN), Abacha wants the apex court to nullify the February 10 judgment by the Court of Appeal in Kano, which voided his nomination as the governorship candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party in Kano State.
He is also urging the apex court to order the Independent National Electoral Commission to reinstate him as the valid candidate of the PDP in Kano for the next governorship election.
In two notices of appeal filed by his lawyer, Abacha argued that the Court of Appeal, Kano, erred in law when it set aside an earlier judgment of the Federal High Court, Kano, which recognised him as the actual candidate of the party in the state.
