The Chief Registrar of the Court of Appeal, Umar Bangari, on Wednesday, said there was no contradiction in the court’s judgment on the Kano state governorship election.
According to him, what happened in the judgment’s Certified True Copy (CTC) was a clerical error.
He noted it does not in any way invalidate or change the findings and conclusion of the court on the matter.
He disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.
The Chief Registrar said the clerical error would be rectified, once parties in the matter file a formal application to that effect.
Besides, he stressed that Order 23 Rule 4 of the Court of Appeal HandBook, empowered the court to correct any clerical error, once detected by the court or any of the parties in the matter.
He added that contrary to insinuations in social media, the judgment of the court remained valid.
“What happened in the part of the judgment is just a mere clerical error that ought not to draw any issue.
“The Court is empowered to correct such clerical error and that will be done as appropriate,” Bangari added.
