Supreme Court Affirms Tambuwal’s Victory

The Supreme Court has affirmed the victory of Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State at last year’s polls.

A seven-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Tanko Muhammad, in a unanimous judgment delivered on Monday, dismissed the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress and its governorship candidate, Aliyu Sokoto, to challenge Tambuwal’s victory at the March 2019 poll.

Delivering the lead judgment, Justice Uwani Abba-Aji, held that both the Sokoto State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal were right to dismiss the appellants’ appeal on the grounds of failing to adduce credible evidence to prove their case.
