BAUCHI: Time to forge ahead, APC tells members after losing at tribunal

Published

on

The Bauchi State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Tuesday implored its members across the state to forge ahead and start preparing on making the party stronger.

The call came after the party lost to the state’s ruling party, PDP, at the tribunal on Monday.

The election petition tribunal’s judgement on Monday dismissed the party’s petition against the victory of the incumbent governor, Bala Mohammed.

The State chairman of the party, Uba Nana, made the appeal on Tuesday while addressing newsmen in Bauchi.

He appealed to party chieftains, members and supporters to remain committed to the success of the party in future.

He also appreciated their supporters for showing solidarity to the party throughout the court’s proceedings asking them to remain in the party.

Recall that the APC and the former governor of the state Mohammed Abubakar filed a petition before the tribunal challenging the declaration of PDP and governor Bala Mohammed as winner of the last election over alleged over voting and other electoral malpractices.

But, the tribunal led by its Chairman, Justice Salihu Shuaibu, while delivering verdict on Monday, dismissed the petition, stating that the petitioners failed to prove their case.
