Binani Wants Appeal Court to Declare Her Winner of APC Gubernatorial Primaries in Adamawa

Senator Aisha Ahmed Binani, the embattled candidate for the 2023 gubernatorial elections in Adamawa State has urged an appellate court to declare her as the lawful winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary elections conducted a few months ago.

The senator through her counsel, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) Akin Olujimi is seeking the pre-electoral panel set up by the President of the Court of Appeal to determine all pre-election matters to declare her as the duly elected candidate of APC.

Olujimi who led six other SANs and 12 erudite lawyers in a triple appeal to the court, urged the pre-election panel to dismiss the judgment of a federal high court in Yola presided over by Justice Abdulaziz Anka.

WikkiTimes learnt that Binani had in an appeal instituted last week, joined Ribadu, APC and INEC as first to third respondents. She, however, asked the court to declare her the winner of the primary election conducted on May 26, 2022.

On their part, the defence Counsels (also senior advocates), IK Bawa and ST Olugunorisa, urged the pre-election panel to declare Nuhu Ribadu as the winner of the primary election.

But counsel to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Rotimi Ogunreso, Sule J Abu prayed the court to set aside the judgment of the federal high court stopping the party from fielding a candidate for the gubernatorial election in Adamawa State.

However, in their ruling, the pre-election panel presided over by Justices Teni Yesuf Hassan, M.O Bolaji and James Abundaga after the adoption of the briefs submitted by the counsels, reserved judgement for a later date to be communicated.
