Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Abuja Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal case filed by Senator Umaru Dahiru, challenging the emergence of Aminu Waziri Tambuwal as governor of Sokoto state.

The court had reserved judgment in the suit filed on account of, “non-compliance with laws in the conduct of the primary election” that produced Tambuwal in 2014 as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress.”

The appeal was filed by Umaru Dahiru and Aliyu Sanyinna, aspirants in the December 4, 2014, APC governorship primary election.
