Forgery Allegation: Governor Yahaya hails court ruling

The Gombe government has reacted to the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court’s judgment on Tuesday that dismissed the forgery allegation by the PDP and its governorship candidate, Muhammed Barde, against Governor Inuwa Yahaya, the APC and INEC.

In a statement by Shuaibu-Gara, special adviser on strategy and information management to Mr Yahaya, said Wednesday that the case filed by the PDP and Mr Barde was uncalled-for.

Justice Binta Nyako struck out the case for lacking competence.

“We have not bothered ourselves about the case in the first place because it lacked focus, merit and moral standing, and we refused to be distracted by it in any way,” said Ms Nyako. “For a person as Barde, who did not participate in a primary election and who lacks any political base whatsoever to be instituting this kind of case, defies all logic, especially after the state’s INEC had declared Governor Inuwa as the candidate for election.”

The judge added, “But we understand that he was desperate to achieve a political base. Only a confused and idle person in one party will challenge the nomination of a candidate by another political party to which he has no link whatsoever.”

The statement commended the court ruling as clear evidence of the rule of law governing the ruling APC in Nigeria.

He said it was a departure from the era of impunity that characterised the previous PDP administration in the country.
