The Court of Appeal sitting in Sokoto led by Justice Tom Yakubu, had on Monday set aside the judgment of a Zamfara High Court on the APC primaries that produced the party’s candidates for the governorship, National and State Assembly elections.
Reacting, Marafa, who is one of the APC governorship aspirants, said the judgment has vindicated him and his colleagues.
“I have always believed that the Zamfara State High Court ruling was nothing but a black market judgment that can never stand legal scrutiny,” he said.
“The Appeal Court judgment has rekindled the fact that the judiciary is the last hope of the common man.
“We are all living witnesses to the fact that the APC in Zamfara was unable to conduct primaries and couldn’t reach consensus due to the attitude of Yari, but the Zamfara State High Court judge ruled against the truth.
“The Appeal Court has today done justice by throwing the judgment of the Zamfara High Court to the trash bin, where it rightly belongs
“The statement by the Zamfara Government House on the Appeal Court judgment is the last kick of dying pigs, not even horses. You can’t build on nothing, APC didn’t conduct primaries, they don’t, therefore, have candidates in the just concluded elections.”
