Ahmadu Fintiri

The Supreme Court on Tuesday affirmed the victory of Governor Ahmadu Fintiri in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Adamawa State.

The apex court in an unanimous judgement dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Jubrilla Bindow, challenging the governor’s victory in the poll.

Bindow, a former governor of the state, lost his re-election bid after he was defeated by the incumbent in the election.

Justice Adediran Adebara, who delivered the lead judgement, ruled that the petition filed by the APC and its candidate lacked merit.

The state governorship election petitions tribunal and Court of Appeal had earlier validated Governor Fintiri’s victory in the election.
