Jigawa APC gov aspirant accepts defeat

A governorship aspirant from the All Progressives Congress in Jigawa State, Farouk Adamu Aliyu, said he has accepted the Supreme Court’s ruling in good faith.

Aliyu said this on Friday, after the apex court sitting in Birnin Kudu, ruled against him.

Daily Post reported that Justice Ibrahim Saulawa-led panel dismissed the case filed by Aliyu, challenging the judgments of High Court, Dutse and that of the Appeal Court sitting, Kano, that upheld the Jigawa State APC gubernatorial primary election.

Aliyu, in reacting to the ruling, said, as a strong believer in democracy and rule of law, he had accepted the outcome of the judgement in good faith, and therefore, urged all his supporters to do the same and remain calm over the judgement.

He also assured party members to work for the success of the party in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

Aliyu had challenged the APC gubernatorial primary election that brought the state deputy governor, Malam Umar Namadi, as Jigawa State APC gubernatorial candidate.

He alleged that the election was not freely conducted as per the party’s constitution, INEC guidelines, electoral act 2022 and the constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 as amended.
