BREAKING: Supreme Court Declares Bala Muhammad as Duly Elected Governor of Bauchi State

Bala Muhammad

The Supreme Court, on Friday, upheld the election of Governor Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State.

The apex court, in its lead judgement that was delivered by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, dismissed an appeal the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Sadique Abubakar, filed to challenge the outcome of the governorship election that was held in the state on March 18, 2023.

Abubakar and his party had contended that Governor Mohammed, who was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was not the valid winner of the gubernatorial contest.

They alleged that the election was not conducted in substantial compliance with the Electoral Act 2022, insisting that several electoral documents that were used during the poll were not properly filled.
