Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has reacted to the Supreme Court Judgement on Bauchi and Sokoto state governorship election.

The Supreme Court had on Monday determined the fate of five Governors.

The apex Court affirmed that incumbent Governor of Sokoto state, Aminu Tambuwal, was duly elected in the governorship election conducted on March 9, 2019.

It, therefore, struck out the appeal brought by Ahmed Aliyu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, challenging the said election.

Later in the day, the apex court dismissed the appeal challenging the return of Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.

In a unanimous judgement delivered on the petition filled by the APC and its candidate on Monday, a five-man panel of the court led by Justice Sylvester Nguta threw away Mr Abubakar’s prayers and affirmed Bala’s victory

Reacting, Dogara congratulated both PDP governors over their victory.

On his official Twitter page, Dogara wrote: “I rejoice with my brothers and friends, Rt. Hon Aminu Tambuwal and Distinguished Sen. Bala Mohammed over their victories at the Supreme Court today which affirmed the mandates freely given to them by the good people of Sokoto and Bauchi States.”
