The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has issued a Certificate of Return to Mohammed Shamsuddeen Dambazau as Member-elect for Sumaila/Takai Federal Constituency of Kano State.

INEC had withdrawn the certificate it earlier issued to Abdulrahman Sulaiman Kawu Sumaila who was adjudged to be the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress APC, in the election. But Dambazau, son of the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau, sued INEC, APC and Sumaila, challenging the recognition of Sumaila as the APC House of Representatives candidate for Sumaila/Takai federal constituency. He contended that Sumaila never participated in the House of Representatives primary election of the APC in the Federal Constituency. And on April 18, the Federal High Court, sitting in Kano, disqualified Sumaila – a former Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on House of Representatives Matters- as the duly elected Member of the House of Representatives on the platform of the APC in the February 23, 2019, general elections. The court also ordered INEC to recognize Dambazau as the duly elected House of Representatives member, representing Sumaila/Takai federal constituency. Issuing the Certificate of Return in Abuja, INEC National Commissioner, Amina Zakari said the issuance of the certificate was based on the order of the court which the body obeys. “INEC is a law abiding organisation and respects the rule of law, hence the issuance of the certificate to Alhaji Muhammed Shamsuddeen,” said Amina Zakari.  (Vanguard)
