The four-man panel led by Justice Hussein Mukhtar in a unanimous judgement upheld Tambuwal’s election after dismissing the appeal filed by the APC and its governorship candidate for lacking in merit.

Jodi said, “Legally, the battle has just begun and there is no cause for alarm. We have very strong reasons to appeal this judgment to the Supreme Court.

” With the help of the Almighty Allah, we are optimistic that, we will in Sha Allahu succeed at the end,” he said.

Meanwhile, the APC Leader in the state, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko (APC- Sokoto), while addressing the party supporters in the state said that the Counsel of the party will study the Judgment and advise appropriately.

“As Muslims, with a strong faith in God, we should always be grateful to Him in our struggles to seek redress, as such I urge you all to be peaceful, calm, law-abiding and faithful, as well as shun violence,” he said.

Wamakko further lauded the people of the state for their sustained confidence, love and support to the APC.
