Elections: Kano FA hold election despite court order


Sharu Ahlan has been re-elected for the fifth time as Chairman of Kano State Football Association (FA).

The election went ahead despite a Kano High Court order issued on Friday restraining Ahlan and four others from conducting the election.

The restraining order was issued by Justice Usman Na’abba in response to the request of the plaintiff Muhammad Salisu-Rabiu.

The plaintiff had cited Ahlan, Ma’aruf Yakasai, Kano FA and the State Sports Council as first, second, third and fourth defendants in the suit.

‎However, at the election conducted in Minjibir Park and Resort on Sunday‎, Ahlan polled 55 votes to be returned as chairman of Kano FA for another four years while Aminu Mohammed was also returned as vice chairman with 55 votes.‎
