Did You Know, All Acts By A Governor Before Nullification Of His Election Are Valid

Where a Governorship candidate is declared a winner and takes the oath of office, exercises all the functions of the office and later his election was nullified.

The law says that all the acts performed during the period of such a Governor in office are legal.

The nullification of his election will only make him cease the performance of those functions as the governor and all his actions are valid and enforceable under the law.

See the case of Balonwu & Ors vs. Governor of Anambra State & Ors (2008)16 NWLR Part 1113.
