Court reinstates Usman as PDP Kaduna Central Senatorial candidate

An Appeal Court with jurisdiction in Abuja has reinstated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District, Lawal Adamu Usman.

According to Vanguard, the Kaduna Central Senatorial District primary election was declared invalid by a Federal High Court sitting in Kaduna, and a new election was mandated.

Lawal Adamu, also known as “Mr. LA,” was declared the winner of the primary election and later listed as the PDP Kaduna Central Senatorial Candidate by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

But Adamu’s victory was challenged in court by Usman Ibrahim, who came second in the primary election.

However, when the matter was brought before an Appellate Court in Abuja, Justice Peter Affen held in his judgement on Monday that the Kaduna High Court went outside of its boundaries to inquire into the internal affairs of the party.

Hence, the case was set aside, and Lawal Adamu Usman was declared the candidate for the Kaduna Central Senatorial District.
