The Supreme Court on Friday in a unanimous judgement prepared by Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun upheld the primary election conducted on May 26 which produced Namadi as the APC governorship candidate in Jigawa State.

In his ruling, Justice Ibrahim Saulawa dismissed in its entirety the appeal filed by Farouk Adamu Aliyu, a former Minority Leader of the House of Representatives.

In a unanimous judgement, the five justices of the court agreed that the suit lacked merit and substance.

Namadi, through his counsel, Prince Lateef Olasunkanmi Fagbemi, SAN, had won the legal battle at the Federal High Court in Dutse as well as at the Court of Appeal in Kano putting to an end the long-drawn legal battle on the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress in Jigawa State.
