Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has described the suit filed by Abba Kabiru Yusuf of the PDP challenging his March 2019 victory as lacking in burden of proof.

Ganduje said his PDP rivals have failed to establish their burden of proof before the tribunal.

The counsel representing governor Ganduje, barrister Ibrahim Mukthar reacting to questions from judicial reporters at the Miller road court complex said the Ganduje camp is afar from being under pressure to counter the allegations filed by the petitioners.

According to him, in electoral disputes, the petitioners are under the mandate to execute the burden of proof. stressing that the PDP and its gubernatorial candidate presented only 39 out of the enlisted over 200 scheduled witnesses.

Mukthar, who is the immediate past Kano state Attorney General and commissioner for justice said “so far, we have nothing to bother ourselves about.

“They did not come strongly on the issues they raised, they failed to produce the huge number of witnesses, so I feel they did not present the burden of proof, in this case we decided to respond by bringing only four witnesses.
“therefore there is no case, for us to bother, since no burden of proof.”Mukthar stated.
