Tribunals are undoing Obasanjo’s election magic
The Adamawa State Elections Tribunal today nullified the election of the state governor, retired Admiral Murtala Nyako. Nyako ran under the platform of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Action Congress (AC) candidate, Ibrahim Bapatel, had petitioned the tribunal claiming that he was unfairly disqualified by the Independent Electoral Commission on the eve of the election without valid reasons.
Nyako has been in the news lately because of feuds by his many wives over who amongst them should occupy the office of the First Lady.
