David Odama


Following the governorship election tribunal judgement delivered last Monday, Nigerians have urged governor Abdullahi Sule to toe the part of honour by jettisoning his plan action to continue with the case.


Speaking differently while reacting to an interview granted the APC lawyer, Dr Mubarak monitored on Thursday on TVC News, Nigerians were unanimous in the reaction to the tribunal judgement asking the governor to display the spirit of sportsmanship following the outcome of the tribunal judgement.


According to the comments by those who called into the programme, forging ahead collectively for the development of Nasarawa state was the best way forward adding that these can be realized only when governor Abdullahi Sule toe the part of honour and accept the defeat.


A callers from Adamawa state who simply identified himself as Emmanuel wondered how a lawyer of repute will come on National television to disown issues that were obvious and in line with the tribunal judgement.


He argued that over voting in Gayam and Chiroma wards of Lafia local government were clear issues of manipulation, as according to him. results presented by the APC as reflected could not have been more authentic than the results off loaded from the INEC BVN machines.


Other Nigerians who called in from Niger state said, however, while contributing that the issue with the Nasarawa governorship election can not be in any way liken to that of Kano state.


“We are all Nigerians and have been monitoring the electoral processes in Nasarawa state. We therefore hold strongly that governor Abdullahi Sule should accept the tribunal judgement and congratulate the PDP candidate, David Emmanuel Ombugadu for the overwhelming support he received from the people of Nasarawa State during the March governorship election”.


“We are not judges, but it is wrong for a political party to describe Judges’ pronouncement as a monumental error. APC should not be a judge in their own case. Rather, they should seek further legal redress instead of using a fowl language to describe a judgement delivered by a competent court”
