Social sharing

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has sacked Aminu Kanta, the House of Representatives candidate for the Babura/Garki Federal Constituency of Jigawa State, in the 2023 general elections.

Justice Emeka Nwite sacked Kanta who was declared the winner of the primary election in the state for submitting a false name.

The court hence declared Alhaji Isa Dogonyaro, as the lawful candidate for the APC House of Representative’s primary.
Kanta had previously claimed his name was Ahmed Mohammed – a claim that Dogonyaro challenged in court while alleging that Kanta contested the primary election under a false name.
