The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it will appeal the verdict of the Election Tribunal that dismissed its case challenging the return of PDP’ s Umaru Fintiri as the governor of Adamawa State.
The organising secretary of APC in Adamawa State, Ahmed Lawal, gave this indication in Yola on Friday in reaction to the Judgement of the tribunal that throw out APC petition for lacking in merit.
He urged all party chieftains and supporters not to be demoralized by the outcome of the case at the tribunal, just as he commended them for the show of solidarity to the party throughout proceedings.
“We are peace loving people; we believe in the rule of law and we are going to tread the legal path to reclaim the mandate given to us by the generality of the people of Adamawa State,” he said.
It would be recalled that the tribunal on Friday upheld the election of Governor Umaru Ahmad Fintiri of PDP and dismissed the petition of APC and its candidate, former governor Mohammed Jibrilla Bindow.
The tribunal had ruled that the petitions had failed to prove the case of gross malpractice.
