The All Progressives Congress (APC), has filed a notice of appeal on the tribunal judgment affirming the election of Gov. Aminu Tambuwal in the 2019 governorship poll in Sokoto state.
A member of the APC legal team in the state, Mr Bashir Jodi, made the disclosure while speaking with newsmen in Sokoto on Wednesday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, in the state had on Oct. 2, affirmed the election of Tambuwal.
The three-man tribunal dismissed the petition of the APC and its governorship candidate Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu, for lacking in merit.
Delivering the judgment, tribunal chairman, Justice Abbas Bawale said the petitioners had failed to establish their claims of non -compliance with the Electoral Act and the issue of over voting.
Jodi, however, said Aliyu and the party would contest the Judgment of the lower court at the Court of Appeal, Sokoto.
