Bauchi: Appeal Court Reverses Tribunal Judgement, Reinstates Apc’s Kashuri

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has reinstated the All Progressives Congress House of Representatives member, Bala Rabilu Kashuri, as the duly elected member representing Jama’are/Itas Gadau Federal Constituency of Bauchi State.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, declared Kashuri, an incumbent member winner of the contested February 25 polls defeating his closest rival, PDP’s Haruna Mohammed Jungudo.

The PDP approached the tribunal alleging that Kashuri had submitted a forged Diploma Certificate from the defunct College of College of Administrative Studies, now Abubakar Tatari Polytechnic in Bauchi.

Whilst the Registrar in a March letter stated he didn’t attend the Institution, he recanted in an April 17 letter , that Kashuri indeed attended the school from 2000-2002.

Jungudo reacts

We have accepted the judgement by the faith of Allah who never make mistakes.
