…dismisses APC candidate’s appeal
Segun Babatunde, Bauchi
Court of Appeal has upheld the declaration of Sen Abdul Ahmed Ningi as the Senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District of Bauchi State.
The appellate court dismissed the appeal of the defeated candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Uba Ahmed Nana, who came second in the elections as declared by INEC.
Uba Ahmed Nana, having lost the election, went to the NASS Elections Petition Tribunal but lost the petition; dissatisfied with the ruling, proceeded to the Court of Appeal, which also affirmed the Tribunal ruling by dismissing the appeal.
While reacting to the judgement, Abdul Ahmad Ningi addressed his supporters saying that the outcome was a clear reflection of the will of people of the Central Senatorial District for better and competence in representation.
He assured that he will not let them down as he will ensure that he brought development to the area which he said has been left behind in all ramifications of development.
Abdul Ahmad Ningi then called on his opponent to put politics behind for now and join hands with him for the development of the area because according to him, collective measures is what is needed now.
He particularly called Uba Ahmad Nana to come and join hands with him in moving the Senatorial District forward just as he called for continous prayers and support from all to enable him succeed in the task ahead of him.
