APC Increases Imo Guber Campaign Council Members To 528

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the Nigerian judiciary after the appeal court ruled in its favour in Kano and Zamfara governorship legal tussle.

Naija News recalls that on Thursday, the Abuja division of the appeal court sacked Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), ordering a re-run.

In a related development on Friday, the Appeal Court sacked Kano state Governor, Abba Kabir Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), declaring APC’s Nasiru Gawuna election winner.

However, in the statement signed by the party’s national publicity secretary, Felix Morka, APC stated that both judgments underscored the vibrancy of the judiciary.

“Both judgements underscore the vibrancy and independence of the judiciary, and rekindles confidence that the courts are, and remain, the bastion of hope for justice in any democracy. As we applaud the judiciary for its courage and professionalism in discharging its important constitutional duties, we urge it to continue to rise above blackmail and intimidation by some self-serving political interests, and continue to give full expression to the tenets of the law, irrespective of the identity or status of parties involved. We congratulate our victorious members, and urge the good people of Kano and Zamfara states to remain calm and peaceful,” the statement released by the APC read.
