According to Ahemba, the ruling of the tribunal was a temporary setback, adding that the judgement cannot stand the taste of the law, adding that the Governors confidence in the judiciary remains unshaken despite the outcome of the governorship election petitions Tribunal, stressing further that the mandate given to the Governor by the people of Nasarawa State was safe and intact.

“Let me assure the people of Nasarawa State that the mandate they have given to His Excellency, Engr. Abdullahi A. Sule to serve as the Governor for a second term is very safe and intact. Engr. A.A Sule is God’s sent and remains the Governor of Nasarawa State till 2027”

“Those fighting the Governor should know that they are inviting God’s wrath against themselves because it is God, who gives leadership that has given Engr. Abdullahi A. Sule the mandate through the electorates of Nasarawa State to serve as Governor at this time”.
