The Tribunal Upholds Dauda Lawal’s Victory as Governor of Zamfara State

The Tribunal Upholds Dauda Lawal's Victory

The Zamfara State Election Petition Tribunal, convened in Sokoto, has upheld the victory of Dauda Lawal as the duly elected governor of Zamfara State. The tribunal, during its proceedings, dismissed the petition filed by Bello Matawalle, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on the grounds of lacking merit.

In its judgment, the three-member panel, presided over by Justice Cordelia Ogadi, ruled that the petitioner failed to substantiate allegations of irregularities in the collation of election results, exclusion of Maradun Local Government Area (LGA) results, and claims of uncompleted electoral processes in certain wards within the state. Furthermore, the tribunal found no evidence to support accusations of non-compliance with the Electoral Act or corrupt electoral practices by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
