The Sokoto state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on its supporters to remain calm over the loss of two National Assembly seats to the PDP.
A statement issued by the state chairman of the party, Alhaji Sadiq Achida, in Sokoto said the party would study the Court of Appeal verdicts on the cases and respond appropriately.
“The judgements in respect of Sokoto North and South federal constituency, as well as those in respect of Sokoto South senatorial district and Bodinga Dange/Shuni Tureta federal constituency appeared to be clear miscarriage of justice.
“The APC appeals to all our supporters to continue to remain calm and law abiding, these are virtues known to be in our character,” Achida said.
According to the statement, “the APC is examining the judgements and will leave no stone unturned to ensure that it defends all the seats won by the party through votes freely cast by Sokoto people,” he added.
The Court of Appeal Sokoto Division has ordered for fresh election in Sokoto North/Sokoto South federal constituency earlier won by the APC.
The appellate court also declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates for Sokoto South senatorial district and Dange-Shune/Tureta/Bodinga federal constituency winners of the elections in those areas. (NAN)
