By Joseph Erunke
ABUJA – THE Coalition of United Political Parties,CUPP,has hailed Monday’s judgement of the Federal High Court, Abuja,which nullified the primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Zamfara State.
Similarly, CUPP commended the court for its ruling vacating its earlier order restricting INEC from continuing the collation of governorship election result from Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area, saying the development had open room for official declaration of the winner of Bauchi State Governorship election.
In a statement by its spokesman,Ikenga Ugochinyere, CUPP said with the court’s decision,”Gradually the House of political injustice APC built will collapse on their head.”
Recall that the Court of Appeal sitting in Sokoto State, led by Justice Tom Yakubu, has set aside the judgement of a Zamfara High Court on the All Progressives Congress primary election that produced the party’s candidates for the governorship, National and State Assembly elections.”
Speaking on the Bauchi governorship case,CUPP said:”The road is now clear for the official declaration of Senator Bala Mohammed as the People’s Governor-elect for Bauchi State.”
“This ruling is a huge victory for our constitutional democracy and an end to the shameful attempts by enemies of our constitutional governance to use the court to ambush and deny the Bauchi people their constitutional right to see the man they elected sworn in as their governor.
“The Buhari APC shameful legacy of attempting to use the court to halt constitutional electoral process must be condemned by all Nigerians,”he said.
