The Appeal Court sitting in Sokoto State, on Friday, reaffirmed the victory of the state governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, as the winner of the state governorship election.

Justice Husseini Mukhtar, while delivering his judgement, reconfirmed the tribunal’s ruling in favour of the governor and dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Hon Ahmed Aliyu.

The appellate court stated that Ahmed’s appeal against the former federal speaker lacked merit to challenge his victory.

Recall, Aliyu and the APC had, on the 16th of October, 2019, after losing at the state tribunal, headed to the appeal court to further challenge the ruling of the tribunal before today’s final judgement.
