The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has commended the judicial over the party’s Court of Appeal victories in Kano and Zamfara governorship petitions. 

In a verdict on Friday 17 November, 2023 the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja upheld the decision of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal which declared Nasiru Gawuna of the APC winner of the March 18, 2023 election. Another court declared the Zamfara governorship election inconclusive on some local government in the state and ordered a rerun in the affected areas.

Reacting to these developments via a statement in Abuja, National Publicity Secretary, APC, Barr Felix Morka, congratulated the party’s victorious members and called on the people of Kano and Zamfara to remain calm.

Morka wrote: “This judgement, sacking Abba Kabi Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) as Governor of Kano State, comes barely 24 hours after the court declared the governorship election of Zamfara State inconclusive and ordered a rerun in three Local Government Areas of the state. 

“Both judgements underscore the vibrancy and independence of the judiciary, and rekindles confidence that the courts are, and remain, the bastion of hope for justice in any democracy.

“As we applaud the judiciary for its courage and professionalism in discharging its important constitutional duties, we urge it to continue to rise above blackmail and intimidation by some self-serving political interests, and continue to give full expression to the tenets of the law, irrespective of the identity or status of parties involved.

“We congratulate our victorious members, and urge the good people of Kano and Zamfara states to remain calm and peaceful.”
