A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the suit filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 governorship election in Adamawa State, Senator Aisha Dahiru Binani.
Binani sued to seek judicial review of the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reverse her earlier announcement as winner of the election by the state’s embattled Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC).
However, at the mention of the case on Wednesday, her lawyer informed the court about the notice of discontinuance filed by the plaintiff (Binani) and prayed the court to strike out the suit.
In a ruling, Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the suit as prayed by the plantiff.
