Zamfara State Governor, Dauda Lawal, has described the Appeal Court’s verdict as a temporary setback for his administration.
The court’s three-judge panel declared the Zamfara State governorship election inconclusive on Thursday, ordering a rerun in three local government areas: Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.
A statement released today by the governor’s spokesman, Sulaiman Bala Idris, insisted that Governor Lawal was elected due to dissatisfaction with the state’s prevailing conditions.
According to the statement, the outcome of the governorship election on March 18 accurately reflected the people’s desire for a shift towards positive development and progress.
Governor Lawal remained optimistic that the collective decision of the people will ultimately prevail.
He called on the people of Zamfara State to remain calm as his legal team is thoroughly reviewing the verdict and will follow through with the necessary actions to achieve a just outcome.
