The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, on Tuesday stormed a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja with 35 lawyers over a suit seeking to sack him from office.
The suit seeking Tambuwal’s removal as governor was filed by a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State, Senator Umaru Dahiru.
Citing “electoral fraud,” Dahiru alleged that the governor was illegally nominated by the party to participate in the 2015 governorship election in the state.
Dahiru informed the court that APC conducted “a fraudulent” primary election in 2014 in its bid to ensure that Tambuwal emerged as it gubernatorial candidate in the state governorship election.
The APC Chieftain claimed that list of accredited delegates was swapped at the election venue and that votes were arbitrarily, unlawfully and fraudulently allocated to Tambuwal.
