The lower Court submitted that some result sheets that purportedly gave victory to Yusuf were not signed, thus vitiated the scores as the Court removed 165,663 votes making it the total legal figure at 853,939.

Meanwhile, the scores credited to the rival governorship candidate of the APC, Nasir Gawuna stood at 890,705.

The Court further ruled that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf was not a member of the NNPP as at the time the elections were conducted and is therefore not qualified to contest for the seat, says the tribunal was wrong not to have disqualified the appellant, Governor Yusuf.
