The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State is not happy with the recent tribunal decision that declared Governor Ahmadu Fintiri as the validly elected governor of the state. The tribunal ruled against APC’s candidate, Senator Aishatu Dahiru Ahmed, also known as Aishatu Binani.
The tribunal stated that APC and Binani failed to provide enough evidence to support their case against Fintiri. They also accused the resident electoral commissioner, Hudu Yunusa-Ari, of committing a criminal act by declaring Binani as the winner at one point during the announcement of results.
Idris Shuaibu, the state chairman of APC, expressed his shock and disappointment with the verdict. However, he assured party members that they have two more opportunities to challenge the tribunal’s decision.
As a lawyer and former legal adviser of the party in the state, Shuaibu explained that they will work with the national leadership to obtain the certified record of the judgement. They will carefully study it and then proceed with an appeal.
Shuaibu emphasized that the tribunal’s decision does not reflect the true mandate of the voters in Adamawa State. He urged party members to remain calm and thanked them for their support.
The APC in Adamawa State is determined to explore all legal options to reclaim their mandate and ensure that their candidate becomes the governor.
