Appeal Court upheld Gov Dankwambo’s election
By; Tina Phineas, Yola.
The Federal Court of Appeal sitting in Yola, the Adamawa State capital has upheld the election of Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwanbo of Gombe State in the last general elections, in May 2015.
Delivering the judgement in Yola Thursday, Justice Helen M.Ogunwumiju ruled that the APC Governorship candidate and his party were unable to proof beyond reasonable doubt that the elections was marred with irregularities in the state.
Reacting to the judgement, Counsel to Governor Hassan Dankwambo, Barrister Zubairu M.Umar described the outcome of the appeal as justice given to the deserving people at the right time.
Umar said the success recorded is a positive development to democracy and in the event APC head for the Supreme Court, their legal team is  equal to the task and waiting.
However, Counsel to the APC Governorship candidate, Barrister Aliyu Usman Barde declined to speak to the press on the matter.
It could be recall that APC Governorship candidate, Alhaji Umar Yahaya and his party in Gombe state felt unsatisfied with the result of the governorship polls that produced Governor Dankwambo as the winner of the May 2015 general elections.
