Supreme Court to Preside Over Governorship Election Petitions in Nassarawa, Ogun, Taraba, Rivers



The Supreme Court has scheduled Friday, January 19, 2024, for the delivery of judgment on governorship election petitions in Rivers, Ogun, Nasarawa, and Taraba States. This development follows the final briefs adoption by lawyers representing the parties involved in the disputes arising from the March 18, 2023, governorship elections in these states.

In the case of Nasarawa State, the apex court reserved judgment in the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, David Ombugadu, challenging the electoral victory of Governor Abdullahi Sule. The appeal aims to set aside the November 23, 2023, judgment of the Court of Appeal, which reversed the earlier judgment of the election tribunal that sacked Governor Abdullahi Sule of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Similarly, the Supreme Court has also reserved judgment in an appeal seeking to invalidate the election of Governor Agbu Kefas in Taraba State, Siminalayi Fubara in
Rivers State and Dapo Abiodun in Ogun State. The ruling is anticipated after all parties involved in the suit made their final submissions.

The final briefs adoption marked a significant step in the legal proceedings, and the parties await the Supreme Court’s judgment, which is expected to bring clarity to the contentious issues surrounding the governorship elections in these states.
