From Adam Muhammad, Gusau
The Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress APC has expressed optimism over today’s judgement by the Court of Appeal which averred that the last governorship election in the state was inconclusive and ordered for re-run in some parts of the state.
This is contained in a statement signed by the state publicity secretary of the party, Yusuf Idris and made available to Hotpen in Gusau Thursday.
“No doubt therefore, we will legally and happily confident that our stolen mandate will soon be returned to us thereby vindicating our cries that the opposition PDP had during the polls used some misguided trigger happy security personnel to deny the teeming APC members and supporters from exercising their franchise”. The statement reads in part.
“With today’s declaration by the Court of Appeal, we are optimistic that very soon, the people’s governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle will be back to his rightful position as the Executive Governor of Zamfara State”. The statement contended
The party described the ruling as a clear testimony of our strong belief in God’s choice to give power or takes it as He wills.
“We are also appreciative of the judiciary for painstakingly carrying out a job well done”.
“Our people, the electorate as well as our friends and supporters within and outside the state who are sacrificing a lot of their comfort to pray for our success, deserve a big thank you as we assure all that we will not fail you”.
“To our opponents, we say God’s time is always the best, and we promise to continue to champion the course of peace, harmony and development of Zamfara State to greatness.”
“We 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”. The statement reads in part.
