The All Progressives Congress (APC), in Sokoto State, says it will appeal the Judgment of the Court of Appeal, which upheld the election of Gov. Aminu Tambuwal, at the Supreme Court.
Addressing newsmen in Sokoto shortly after the Judgment on behalf of the APC Legal Team, Barrister Bashir Jodi said that the party has very
strong reasons to appeal the judgement.
DAILY POST had reported that the Court of Appeal sitting in Sokoto upheld the election of Tambuwal as the Governor of the state.
The four-man panel led by Justice Hussein Mukhtar in a unanimous
judgment, upheld Tambuwal’s election after dismissing the Appeal filed by Aliyu for lacking in merit.
Reacting, Jodi said, “Legally, the battle has just begun and there is no cause for alarm. We have very strong reasons to appeal this
Judgment to the Supreme Court.
” With the help of the Almighty Allah, we are optimistic that, we will
in Sha Allahu succeed at the end,” NAN quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, the APC Leader in the state, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC-Sokoto), while addressing the party supporters in the state said that
the Counsel of the party will study the Judgment and advise appropriately.
“As Muslims, with strong faith in God, we should always be grateful to
Him in our struggles to seek redress, as such I urge you all to be peaceful, calm, law abiding and faithful, as well as shun violence,” he said.
Wamakko further lauded the people of the state for their sustained confidence, love and support to the APC.
