Sokoto gov, Aliyu, lauds Judiciary after Appeal Court victory

2 min read

Following a judgement of the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, affirming his election, the Sokoto State Governor, Ahmed Aliyu, has described the verdict as a clear testimony of an unbiased Nigeria’s judiciary.

He stated this in a statement shortly after the appellate court in Abuja upheld the earlier judgement of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, upholding his victory at the March 18 2023 poll.

He described the outcome at the appellate court as clearly demonstrated to the entire world that Nigeria’s judiciary is unbiased, just and fair.

“We see this victory as a victory from the Almighty Allah and we thank Him for that.

“We equally commend our judiciary for standing for the truth and what is right.

“Let me use this golden opportunity to renew my call to the opposition in Sokoto State to come and join hands with us so that together we can make the state better,”Aliyu urged.

A statement signed and made available to newsmen in the state by his media aide, Abubakar Bawa, said the Governor reassured the people of the state of his administration’s unwavering determination to deliver the direly needed dividends of democracy to their doorsteps.

“We will continue to provide an enabling environment that will guarantee the needed development in our dear state.

“We are determined to secure our dear state through sustained military operations until we eliminate bandits and other criminals by the special grace of God.

“We, therefore, need the unflinching support and cooperation of all and sundry in this direction,” he added.

Governor Aliyu also harped on the need for the people of the state to continue to rally round the present administration in its quest to transform the state.

He also thanked the people of the state for their support and fervent prayers to his administration, which has helped greatly in achieving the myriad of successes so far recorded in the state.

He solicited for more fervent prayers, suggestions and constructive criticisms aimed at making Sokoto State better.

Recall that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Sokoto State and its candidate, Sai’du Umar, having lost at the Governorship election petition tribunal filed a petition at the appellate Court challenging the verdict that upheld the victory of Governor Ahmed Aliyu at the last election in the state.
