Hey there, middle schoolers! So, something interesting happened in Kaduna, Nigeria. There was an election for the governor of the state, and the person who won, Governor Uba Sani, had his victory challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and their candidate, Isah Mohammed Ashiru. They said that Uba Sani shouldn’t have won and that there were some problems with the election.
Now, Governor Uba Sani tried to get the PDP’s petition thrown out. He said that their claims were not valid and that the court should just ignore them. But guess what? The Kaduna State Governorship Election Tribunal said, “Nope, we’re not throwing out the petition!” They dismissed Uba Sani’s objections and said that the PDP’s case can go forward.
The judge explained that the PDP’s candidate, Isah Ashiru, filed his petition on time. This means that he followed all the rules and didn’t wait too long to complain about the election. The court said that Ashiru did everything right, so they’re going to listen to what he has to say.
Now that the objections have been dismissed, the PDP’s petition will continue. The court will listen to both sides and decide if there were any problems with the election. It’s like a big investigation to find out if everything was fair and square.
So, that’s the latest news from Kaduna. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next. Will the PDP’s petition be successful? Or will Governor Uba Sani keep his position as the governor of Kaduna? Stay tuned to find out!
