APC defeats PDP in Sokoto as appeal court dismiss appeal

The Court of Appeal upheld the election of Sen. Aliyu Wamakko as senator representing Sokoto Central and dismissed the appeal filed by Sen. Ahmad Maccido against the judgement of the National and State House of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal.

In their judgement, the three-man panel led by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa whose judgment was read by Justice Hamma Akawu said that the Appeal Court upheld the judgement of the lower court.

The panel also threw out the petition by Aminu Shagari and Kabiru Achida of PDP challenging the tribunal judgement of Abubakar Yabo and Almustapha Rabah of APC respectively.

Shagari and Achida contested the 2019 election for Yabo/Shagari and Rabah/Wurno Federal Constituencies under the platform of PDP respectively.

Reading the judgements, the Presiding Judge Justice Saulawa, said the court lacked jurisdiction, as the 60 days jurisdiction of the court had elapsed on Nov. 2, and Nov. 3, respectively.

The Appeal Court has also dismissed the appeal by Alhaji Sa’idu Na-Bunkari of APC challenging the election of Alhaji Mani Maishinku of PDP for Binji/Silame Federal Constituency.
