His opponent, Emma Alamu of the People Democracy Party, has provided the Tribunal with evidence that Danjuma had presented a fake age declaration certificate and primary school certificate to INEC for Clearance.

Mr. Mohay Ndayako the counsel to the petitioner asked the Tribunal to remove Danjuma and install his client.

The three-man Tribunal headed by Justice B Zubairu upheld the petition and declared Danjuma ‘s Victory null and void, as the petitioner prove that Danjuma presented forged documents to INEC.

Danjuma’s election was annulled an INEC was advised to conduct a fresh election in the Constituency within 90 days.
