A five man Panel of the Supreme Court headed  by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria,  Justice Tanko Mohammed has  dismissed the appeal filed by APC Gubernatorial candidate, Sani  Danladi for being incompetent and failing to meet the requirements of the law.

Mr Danladi was disqualified from contesting the 2019 Governorship election in Taraba state on the 6th day of March,2019 by the Federal High Court, Jalingo presided over by Justice Stephen  Pam.

The court had based its decision on allegations of false declaration of age by Mr Danladi in the documents provided to the Independent National Electoral Commission 

However, on the 7th day of March, 2019 the Court of Appeal sitting in Yola stayed the execution of the judgment of the lower  court in favour of Mr  Danladi which enabled him to stand for the March 9th, 2019 Governorship election in Taraba state. 

But the appellate Court of Appeal subsequently struck out the appeal for being incompetent on the 3rd day of may, 2019.

Mr Danladi further appealed to the Supreme Court which affirmed the judgment of the Appeal court.
