Supreme Court Verdict on Wednesday

In a pivotal decision on Wednesday, the Supreme Court rendered a significant ruling, rejecting an appeal brought forth by the Social Democratic Party and its nominee, Umar Ardo, in the Adamawa governorship race.

Request to Drop Lawsuit

The court’s decision came after an earnest plea from the candidate’s attorney, urging the judiciary to discontinue the legal proceedings.

Denial by Five-Person Panel
