The tribunal in its  ruling said that the former member representing Kagarko constituency at the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Honestly. Nuhu Goro Shadalafiya, has described the nullification of over voting that gave his opponent the Candidate of the PDP, Morondia Tanko, as a victory for democracy.
