Gov. Lawal welcomes Supreme Court verdict, says ‘judgement will boost my morale to fulfil all campaign promises’

Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State has hailed the judgement of the Supreme Court which affirmed his victory as the duly elected governor of the state, saying that the verdict will motivate him to fulfil all his campaign promises.

On Friday, the apex court had set aside the decision of the Court of Appeal in Abuja, which declared the Zamfara Governorship Election inconclusive.

Delivering the lead decision of the Supreme Court, Justice Emmanuel Agim described the judgement of the lower court as perverse and lacking evidential foundation.


Reacting to the ruling in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Sulaiman Idris, Mr Lawal said the apex court’s verdict reflected the people’s desire for positive development and progress.

While calling on the opposition parties to support the rescue mission of his administration, Mr Lawal emphasised that working together is critical to achieving sustainable development in the state.

He said: “I am thrilled to have received affirmation of my election by the Supreme Court today. This verdict will boost our morale in fulfilling campaign promises.


“Today’s victory is confirmation of the collective decision made by the people of Zamfara State during the governorship election held in March last year. This victory is for all the people of Zamfara State.

“By my campaign manifesto, which serves as a guide for our rescue mission, my administration has taken swift action to liberate Zamfara from the shackles of poor governance.

“I am urging all people of Zamfara, including opposition parties, to unite and work together to rebuild and restore the state.

“The success of our collective efforts depends on the active collaboration of all stakeholders. Let’s prioritise collaboration and work towards a better future for our state.

“My administration is on a mission to rebuild the state, and the Supreme Court’s decision is a victory for the people who trusted me,” the governor said.
