JUST IN: Tribunal Affirms Tambunal’s Victory as Sokoto Governor.||Anyigbaleft


The Sokoto State Governorship Election Tribunal on Wednesday held that the election which declared Aminu Tambuwal as governor of the state was valid.

Ahmed Aliyu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had filed a petition before the Tribunal challenging the victory of the incumbent as well as that of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC) for declaring Tambuwal the winner in the March 2019 state governorship election.

Aliyu claimed that he was not satisfied with the outcome of the re-run election held on the March 23 therefore, approached the tribunal challenging the return of Tambuwal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor-elect, on the grounds that the election was marred with irregularities.

However, on the whole, the Justice Abbas Bawale-led tribunal held that the application by the petitioner lacks merit and constituted a waste of judicial time.
