5 – elected Ward delegates per ward for or to the State Party Congress on July 31 2021.
The court also set aside any other list of any other report or directives given by the Defendants on 9th August 2021 other than the valid, and authentic summary result sheets for Ward Congress, Elected Delegates and State Delegates of Kano State consisting of the Plaintiffs’ names as the duly elected Ward Executive Committees, Ward Delegates to the Local Government Areas and Ward delegates to the State Party Congress of the APC of Kano State.
