Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, has dedicated his victory at

the Court of Appeal to Almighty God and appealed to opposition
political parties to join hands with him in building the state.

Saga Gist had reported that the Court of Appeal sitting in Sokoto upheld the election of Tambuwal as the Governor of the state.

The four-man panel led by Justice Hussein Mukhtar in a unanimous judgment, upheld Tambuwal’s election after dismissing the Appeal filed by Aliyu for lacking in merit.

Reacting, Tambuwal who spoke to NAN shortly after the judgment of the Appeal Court thanked God for making the victory in his favour again.

“We thank the people of Sokoto State for their prayers and support

toward our victory from the day we aspired for the seat of leadership.

“I once again dedicate the victory to Almighty and urge all of our supporters to continue to pray for the peace, progress and prosperity
of our state.

“As such we need each and every one of us to be on the same page, working together as a family in building the Sokoto State of our dream,” he said.

He added that there was need for all the people of the state to embrace one another in peace and harmony.

“This is in order to ensure that we joined hands together to continue to build Sokoto State.

“I, therefore, appeal to my brothers and sisters in the other political parties, most especially APC, to come and join us in this project,” he added.

The Governor further said that it is only God Almighty that gives power and non else.

“Once it is decided on a particular person what is left for us is to accept what God has done.

“I once again appeal to all to come and join hands with us to build our state.
“Politics is not a do or die affairs and I believe that my brothers and sisters have that understanding,” he said.
