Supreme Court Rejects SDP's Challenge to Fintiri's Re-Election

The Supreme Court has thrown out the appeal filed by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and its candidate, Umar Ardo, regarding the Adamawa governorship election. Ardo’s counsel had requested the court to withdraw the case, leading to the dismissal by the five-member panel led by John Okoro.

Earlier, both the Court of Appeal in Abuja and the tribunal had already dismissed Ardo’s petition, upholding the victory of Ahmadu Fintiri. Now, Fintiri’s re-election faces another challenge from the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Aishatu Dahiru, who seeks to be declared the governor of the state.
