Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State has reacted to how the Court of Appeal in Abuja voided his victory in the March 18 governorship election in the state and declared the election inconclusive, saying the appellate court’s verdict was a temporary setback.

Governor Lawal, who said this on Friday in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Sulaiman  Idris, noted that his legal team was reviewing the judgment before taking the next necessary action.

Recall we had on Thursday reported that the Court of Appeal held that the All Progressives Congress candidate, Bello Matawalle, successfully proved that Lawal was not duly elected and ordered a rerun in three local government areas of the state including Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.

However, Lawal said that the court’s ruling would not stop him from retaining the mandate given to him by the people of the state in the election, stressing that he was elected due to people’s dissatisfaction with the status quo in the state.

According to the statement, Governor Lawal said, “The outcome of the governorship election on March 18 accurately represented the people’s yearning for a shift towards positive development and progress.

“The ruling by the Appeal Court on Thursday is a temporary setback. However, I remain optimistic that the collective decision of the people will ultimately prevail.

“We will emerge victorious as our unwavering determination and steadfast commitment leave no room for doubt or fear. We faced numerous challenges on the road to victory in the last election. But let me assure our people that we are fully committed to going to great lengths to retain this widely acclaimed mandate.”
