The governorship candidate of Green Party of Nigeria (GPN) Abdulkarim Abdussalam has withdrawn a petition against governor Abdullahi Ganduje.

In an eight paragraph statement, dated May 17th, counsel to Mr Abdussalam, Ibrahim Sa’ad said the petition was withdrawn to allow peace to reign in Kano state.

He cited Section 1 (a) and (b) of Electoral Act to withdraw the petition.

Mr Abdussalam had earlier filed a petition before the tribunal challenging the victory of Governor Ganduje in the last governorship election.

Delivering judgment on Wednesday, Justice Muhammad granted the request of Mr Abdussalam’s counsel and struck out the petition.

With this development, the tribunal has only one governorship case between PDP candidate, Abba Kabir-Yusuf and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to deal with.
