SUPREME COURT AFFIRMS THE ELECTION OF AHMED ALIYU AS THE GOVERNOR OF SOKOTO STATE                                                                     25-01-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                      The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of Ahmed Aliyu as the governor of Sokoto state.

Delivering the lead judgment of a five-member panel of justices of the apex court, Justice Tijjani Abubakar dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its governorship candidate, Saidu Umar.

The apex court held that it found no reason to set aside the concurrent judgements of the Court of Appeal and the Sokoto State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which dismissed the appeal that sought to upturn the election victory of Governor Aliyu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had announced that Governor Aliyu polled a total of 453,661 votes to defeat his closest rival, Umar of the PDP who polled 404,632 votes.
