The Bauchi State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has affirmed the victory of Governor Bala Mohammed and his deputy, Mohammed Auwal Jatau in the March 18th governorship election held in the State.

The tribunal dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its governorship candidate, former Chief Of Air Staff, Sadique Abubakar.

The tribunal led by Justice P.T Kwahar held that there is no strong reason to nullify the election as the election was conducted in compliance with the law.

INEC had in March declared that Mohammed polled 525,280 to beat his closest rival and the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Air Marshal Abubakar who polled 432,272.
