The senator-elect for Niger East Senatorial district under the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mohammed Sani-Musa, has said that he would reclaim his mandate at the Supreme Court.
Mr Sani-Musa made this avowal in a statement on Tuesday in reaction to 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.
The Senator-elect, who was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, having polled the highest valid votes cast, sued for calm among his teeming supporters in the State.
While expressing his dissatisfaction with the appellate court judgment, he said he would pursue the case to a logical conclusion at the Supreme Court.
He, therefore, assured his supporters that there was no cause for alarm, adding that he fittingly won the APC primary election conducted for the senatorial district.
”The appeal court ruling 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 was done to my mandate by the lower court,” the senator-elect said.
