Sokoto election: APC reacts as Appeal court sacks Tambuwal, Shehu


The Sokoto State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on its supporters to remain calm over the loss of two National Assembly seats to the PDP.

DAILY POST reports that the Court of Appeal, Sokoto Division, on Wednesday, nullified the election of Senator representing Sokoto South, Abubakar Tambuwal and member representing Bodinga/Dange Shuni/Tureta Federal Constituency, Aliyu Shehu.

Reacting, APC State Chairman, Alhaji Sadiq Achida said the party would study the Court of Appeal verdicts on the cases and respond appropriately.

“The judgements in respect of Sokoto North and South Federal Constituency, as well as those in respect of Sokoto South Senatorial District and Bodinga Dange/Shuni Tureta Federal Constituency appeared to be clear miscarriage of justice.

”APC appeals to all our supporters to continue to remain calm and law abiding, these are virtues known to be in our character,” NAN quoted Achida as saying.
“The APC is examining the judgements and will leave no stone unturned to ensure that we defend all the seats won by our party through votes freely cast by Sokoto people,” he added.
