By HARUNA AHMED, Gusau –
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has commended the judgement delivered by the Court of Appeal in Abuja on the governorship election in the state.
Recalled that the Appeal court on Thursday declared the Zamfara governorship election inconclusive and ordered for re-run in three local government areas.
The APC Publicity Secretary in Zamfara, Malam Yusuf Idris, who gave the commendation in a statement in Gusau on Thursday, urged its members to remain calm and be law abiding.
He said the APC welcomed the judgement, adding it would lead to the return of its “stolen mandate”.
Idris said that the party viewed the judgement as a great honour from God, and expressed optimism that “very soon, Bello Matawalle will be back to his rightful position as the governor of the state.
“We are confident that our stolen mandate will soon be returned.”
To the party supporters, Idris said they must remain peaceful and exhibit high sense of discipline.
“We wish to appeal to our members especially the youth who have remained patient, calm and law abiding amidst the intimidation, harassment, threats and so on, to continue to display high morals and discipline.”
“God’s time is always the best, and we promise to continue to champion the cause of peace, harmony and development of the state”, he said.
