Zamfara Governor Matawalle Wins At Appeal Court, Dedicates Victory To The Masses

The Federal Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, has ruled in favour of Governor Muhammad Matawalle who was dragged before it by Alhaji Mohammed Takori, the APDA Gubernatorial candidate in the election which took place in the state.

According to a release rolled out by Alhaji Zailani Bappa the Special Adviser on Media to the Governor Muhammad Matawalle was a final victory which was long and well anticipated, as four of the five man panel, ruled in favor of Governor Matawalle insisting that an earlier judgment by the Supreme Court was valid and the case was filed behind time, while one Judge dissented on this. 

Similarly the judges ruled that the issue of spread challenged by Takori was in favor of Governor Bello Muhammad and that the INEC decision on this issue was valid.

On the issue of primary elections, the Court ruled that Takori had no valid argument because the issue of primaries is entirely a party affair.

After the judgment, the newly appointed Commissioner of Justice, Nura Zarumi said the ruling against Matawalle that the case was time valid would be challenged in court at the appropriate time

While responding to the judgment, an elated Governor Matawalle said the verdict was in favour of the masses and that every trumped up challenge against his people's oriented government will continue to suffer defeat. The Governor went further to promise to double his efforts in ensuring the development of peace, justice and fair play in the state.
