The Supreme court has affirmed the election of Bala Mohammed of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor of Bauchi state.
The apex court affirmed the decision of the Court of Appeal and dismissed the appeal by Sadique Abubakar of the All Progressives Congress for lacking in merit.
The Supreme Court Justice says the appellant’s witnesses were not polling units agent, so they could not have given credible testimonies that meet legal standards about what transpired at the poll units during the election.
Delivering judgement in the petition, Justice Saulawa said;
‘’On the basis of the findings, having effectively resolved all the issues against the appellant, the appeal is apparently devoid of merit. The judgement of the Court of Appeal is hereby affirmed. The appeal is dismissed.”
