The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba State has said that it is confident of reclaiming its governorship mandate from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the Supreme Court.
Speaking to our corespondent, the state chairman of the party, Hassan Jika, said that although the party lost at the Appeal Court, they are hopeful of victory at the Supreme Court.
He said they will not rest “until they claim the mandate given to Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan by people of the state”.
He added that the Appeal Court ruling is just a minor set back.
“We believe in the rule of law. The issue is all about the law and we are still confident that we will be given back our mandate to serve the people of Taraba State. Our candidate has faith in the ability of the court to do justice and you know our party, the APC always respects the law no matter the situation,”he said.
Jika maintained that the leadership as well as all members of the APC in Taraba State are solidly behind Senator Alhassan and that they will continue to seek for justice.
