The Majority Leader of the Hosue of Representatives, Mallam Alhassan Ado Doguwa has been sacked on Monday by the Court of Appeal sitting in Kaduna.
Doguwa was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress to represent the Tudunwada/Doguwa Federal Constituency of Kano State.
The election petition tribunal had on September 5, dismissed a petition filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Yusha’u Salisu, against Mr Doguwa’s election on the grounds that he failed to prove allegations of irregularities and over-voting in the election.
However, in a unanimous judgment on Monday, delivered by Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, the Appellate Court set aside the decision of the tribunal and questioned how it arrived at the conclusion that PDP and its candidate had failed to prove their case.
The Appeal Court also nullified the entire election in the two local government areas Mr Doguwa represents, declaring the entire process was marred by irregularities
