A group under the aegis of Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed Vanguard (BAM-V) has called on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate in the March 18, 2023 governorship election in Bauchi state, Ambassador Saddique Baba Abubakar, to accept in good faith the verdict of the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
The tribunal recently upheld the victory of Governor Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed in the poll.
The group in a statemebt by its director-general, Comrade Mohammed Jibo Abubakar, congratulated Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed, Kauran Bauchi, on his well deserved victory at the tribunal.
It urged the APC, its candidate and all well-meaning people of Bauchi state to join hands with the Mohammed-led administration with a view to taking the state to greater heights.
The group, a coalition of various youth groups, said the last Wednesday tribunal judgment was not only victory to Governor Mohammed, having affirmed his victory at the poll but also substantial justice to the people of Bauchi state.
It noted that the tribunal’s judgment confirms the judiciary as the last hope of the common man and also confirms the reward for hard work which the people of Bauchi state gave Governor Mohammed.
“Though we acknowledge the fact that the APC and its gubernatorial candidate have the constitutional rights to appeal the verdict of the tribunal, we, however, called on them to accept the verdict in good faith and in the spirit of sportsmanship and join hands with the Governor Bala Mohammed administration to take Bauchi state to greater heights,” the group said.
