Bauchi Deputy Governor, Jatau Leads Delegation To Appeal Court



The Deputy Governor of Bauchi State, Aueal Jatau, on Friday, led a delegation of officials of the state government to the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division.

Naija News understands that Jatau is in court for the judgment on the governorship election held in March 2023, which will be delivered today.

Members of the delegation include Jatau, who represents the Governor, Bala Mohammed, who is currently out of the country; the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Abubakar Suleiman and the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Hamza Akuyam.

Others include commissioners, special advisers, and other state government officials.

The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, today, will deliver judgment on the election in which the Independent National Electoral Commission declared Mohammed of the PDP winner.

Following the declaration of Mohammed as the winner, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Sadique Abubakar, approached the governorship election petition tribunal, challenging the victory.

Chairman of the three-man panel, P T. Kwahar, in his judgment, affirmed the victory of Mohammed, a former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory.

But not satisfied with the tribunal’s judgment, Abubakar, filed an appeal at the Court of Appeal challenging the decision of the lower court.
