- The All Progressives Congress (APC) vows to head to the Supreme Court to contest the victory of Ahmadu Fintiri
- APC's organising secretary, Ahmed Lawal, says the party is not comfortable with the ruling of the appeal court that favoured Fintiri
- The party, however, explains that it is still waiting for the judgement before it would head to the Supreme Court
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa has asked the governor of the state, Ahmadu Fintiri, not to continue in his jubilation as he still has the Supreme Court to contend with over his election victory.
The party said this in reaction to the victory of Fintiri at the appeal court sitting in Yola, Adamawa in a case filed by the APC contesting his victory at the 2019 general election.
Premium Times reports that the judgement of the appeal court in favour of Fintiri was delivered by Ali Gumel.
The report quoted Ahmed Lawal, APC's organising secretary, as saying that the APC was taking further action because it was not comfortable with the ruling of the appeal court.
“We are waiting to receive the judgement for the next line of action. But we will definitely go to the Supreme Court to retrieve our mandate,” Lawal said.
In his own reaction, Governor Fintiri commended the ruling of the appeal court calling it a victory for the people of the state.
According to him, the ruling is an affirmation of the people’s mandate freely given to him at the election.
The governor promised that he would spend his four years carrying out activities to develop the state as a means to justify the confidence the people have in him.
