The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Kaduna State has appealed to all members and stakeholders to remain calm as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, presents certificate of return to Senator Uba Sani as governor-elect today, Friday.
Abraham Alberah Catoh, the State Publicity Secretary of the party in a statement on Thursday, urged all supporters to be patient and calm as all legal avenues would be taken to ensure they reclaimed their mandate.
According to him, the presentation of Certificate of Return is a normal procedure by INEC, “but it is going to be temporary because the real winner of the gubernatorial election (Hon. Ashiru Kudan), would soon recover his mandate through the competent court of law.”
“Our candidate, Rt. Hon. Mohammed Isa Ashiru, won the election convincingly and all legally acceptable processes are on ground to claim back the people’s mandate,” he said.
“We submitted our Application for Review of the election last Friday, in accordance with Section 82 of the Electoral Act 2022 and are awaiting response from INEC National Headquarters,” he added.
The party congratulated all its members that won different positions during the election.
