The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in this year’s governorship poll in Nasarawa state, Mr. David Ombugadu, has filed a case at the Supreme Court challenging the election of Governor Abdullahi Sule. He is challenging the unanimous decision earlier held by the justices of the Court of Appeal in Makurdi, Venue state. One of the lawyers of Govenor Abdullahi Sule, Dr Mubarak Tijani Adekilekun exclusively told Daily Trust that, “Mr. David Umbugadu has filed a notice of Appeal on Monday at the Supreme Court against the unanimous decision of the justices of the Court of Appeal in Makurdi.” In his reaction, the Chairman of All Progressives Congress, (APC), Mr. Philip Tatari Shekwo, said that, “Mr. David Ombugadu has the constitutional right to challenge any legal matter or decision in court. “But the truth is clear, Engineer Abduallhi Sule has been elected by the majority of the people of Nasarawa and he will be vindicated by the Supreme Court based on the previous tribunal and court of appeal decisions and judgements.” It could be recalled that Abdullah Sule had won at the state tribunal and at the appeallate court in Makurdi.
