From Mohammed Nasir Shuaibu BAUCHI
Again, the All Progressives Congress APC gubernatorial candidate Rtd Sadique ba Abubakar has lost for second at the court of appeal in Abuja.
Besides, the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has today affirmed the election of Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.
The three-man panel led by Justice Nwaoma Chidi Uwa in a unanimous judgement, dismissed the appeal filed by the candidate of All Progressives Congress retired Air Marshal Sadeeq Baba Abubakar challenging the recent ruling of the state election petition tribunal.
Recall that the Retired Air Marshal Sadeeq Baba Abubakar is seeking for notification the 18 March 2023 Gubernatorial election which saw Governor Bala Mohammed as the winner.
While delivering the judgement, justice Nwaoma Chidi Uwa ruled that the complainant fails to provide convincing evidence to support his claims that the election was marred by irregularities.
The appellate court therefore dismissed the petition for lack of merit.
Reacting shortly after the judgement, Governor Bala Mohammed who expressed satisfaction with development described it as a true reflection of the people’s choice.
While calling on the opposition to shelve their sword and submit to the will of God, Bala Mohammed said it is now time to for him consolidate on the implementation of the laudable projects aimed at improving the quality of lives of the citizens.
