The Supreme Court of Nigeria on Wednesday has upheld Nasir El-Rufai as the governor of Kaduna State.

In a panel headed by Justice Centus Nweze, the appeal filed by Mr Isa Ashiru of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the declaration of El-Rufai as the winner of the March 2019 governorship election in the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was dismissed.

The ruling was made in Abuja, as the apex court held that the appeal lacked merit as Justice Nweze read out the unanimous judgment of the panel.
