The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Kano has vacated the son of former Minister of Interior Abdulrahman Dambazau, Shamsuddeen Dambazau, as House of Representatives member representing Sumaila/Takai Federal Constituency, replacing him with Surajo Kanawa.

The tribunal on Friday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to the Peoples Democratic Party’s Candidate(PDP), Kanawa.
Recall that Dambazau did not contest in the election but came second in the APC primaries. thereafter, he got the mandate when a Federal High Court in Kano disqualified a former presidential aide, Kawu Sumaila, in a pre-election suit.
Dambazau had sued INEC, APC and Mr Sumaila challenging the nomination of the latter as the candidate of APC.
He told the court through his counsel, Nuraini Jimoh, that Mr Sumaila contested for the Kano South senatorial seat and lost to Kabiru Gaya.
Sumaila had indeed contested the Kano South senatorial ticket of the APC. He lost to a serving senator, Kabiru Gaya.
