Tunde Bolaji – Minna
The senator-elect for Niger East Senatorial district, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Musa, has said that he will reclaim his mandate at the Supreme Court aftermath of the Appeal Court judgment on Monday which upheld the Appeal filed by Sen. David Umaru against his nomination by the APC in the just concluded national assembly elections.
Alhaji Musa, who was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) having polled the highest valid votes cast, in a press statement in Abuja sued for calm among his teeming supporters in Niger State, assuring them that he fittingly won the APC primary election conducted for the senatorial district.
While expressing his dissatisfaction with the appellate court judgment, he said he would see the case to a logical conclusion at the Supreme Court.
” The appeal court ruling today cannot stand; it is a miscarriage of justice and a complete aberration to what justice entails. I have no doubt in my mind that the apex court in the land will right the wrong temporarily done to my mandate by the lower court,” the senator-elect said.
