Protest rocked Nasarawa over Appeal Court’s judgement upholding Governor Sule’s election.
In a dramatic turn of events, dozens of protesters have descended upon Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa, in response to the Court of Appeal, Abuja’s declaration of Abdullahi Sule as the rightfully elected governor of the state.
Marching through the streets with determination, the protesters displayed placards adorned with various inscriptions while passionately chanting solidarity songs. The Court of Appeal’s decision, which overturned the ruling of the governorship tribunal that ousted Sule of the APC, has sparked a wave of discontent.
According to reports from Politics Nigeria, the tribunal had initially declared David Ombugadu of the PDP as the winner of the March 18, 2023, governorship election. However, the recent Appeal Court verdict has reversed this decision, leading to widespread demonstrations.
In the midst of the unrest, the APC has made a plea to David Ombugadu, urging him not to escalate the matter to the Supreme Court for further interpretation. The political landscape in Nasarawa appears to be in a state of flux as supporters and protesters grapple with the contrasting rulings and the ensuing uncertainty.
The unfolding situation in Lafia underscores the profound impact that judicial decisions can have on the political climate, sparking public reactions and expressions of discontent.
