Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State has reacted to the Monday’s judgement by the Sokoto Division of the Court of Appeal voiding the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship and state assembly primary elections in the state.
However, a statement on Monday by the Special Adviser to the Governor Yari on Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications, Ibrahim Dosara, the governor called on the APC members and others in the state to remain calm and law-abiding pending the release of the judgement which is currently being prepared for presentation to the public.
According to the governor, Court of Appeal Sokoto Division has not nullified the APC elections, unlike the rumours now awash all social media platforms.
He, therefore, noted that there was nothing to worry about since only a Tribunal has the right to listen to issues arising from election matters.
He said: “The statement is incorrect. Those circulating the rumours are doing so to cause mayhem in our state to satisfy the ego of their masters. You may recall that they have been doing so to mislead the public.
“What the Court of appeal Sokoto Division division did this morning was setting aside the judgement by the Zamfara State High Court on the ground of ” EXAMINATION OF PROOFS OF EVIDENCE “. This has nothing to do with our elections.
“The Court has not in any way tempered with our elections, as only Tribunal has the right to listen to issues arising from election matters.
“Again, the Court of appeal Sokoto Division has not in anyway tempered with the processes of the primary elections. It only faulted the examination of the proofs of evidence.
“Furthermore, the processes of filing the appeal were done after the expiration of period within which to do so.”
