Supreme Court affirms Tambuwal as Governor of Sokoto as Aliyu’s Appealis withdrawn

The Supreme Court confirmed that the acting governor, Aminu Tambuwal, was duly elected during the election for governor on March 9, 2019.

He therefore canceled the appeal brought by Ahmed Aliyu from the ruling Congress, all progressive (APC), contesting the said elections.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Abba Aji affirmed that the appeal was unfounded because the appellant could not prove the grounds for his appeal which, among other things, involved excessive voting and failure to comply with the electoral law
