The Supreme Court on Monday validated the victory of Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed, in last year’s governorship election.
A seven-man panel of the apex court unanimously upheld the governor’s election and dismissed the appeal filed by his All Progressives Congress (APC) rival, Mohammed Abubakar, for failing to prove his allegation of election fraud.
