The Supreme Court has reserved judgment in the appeal by the All Progressives Congress Bauchi governorship candidate, Sadique Abubakar, against the election of Governor Bala Mohammed.
A five-member panel of the apex court, led by Justice John Inyang Okoro, reserved judgment after all parties adopted their briefs of argument and affirmed that a slated date would be fixed and communicated to the respective parties for the final judgment.
The leading council to Governor Bala Chris Uche (SAN) urged on the apex court to uphold the appellant’s decision, arguing that the verdict was in line with sections 148 and 135 of the electoral act of the independent national electoral commission.
Governor Mohammed was accompanied by the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), led by state chairman Alh. Hamza Koshe Akuyam, political office holders across the state, and we’ll wishers.
