PDP will win even if rerun covers entire Zamfara – Gov Dauda Lawal


Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara has pledged to remain focused in his bid to execute development projects in the state, despite the Appeal Court judgment which declared the March 18 election inconclusive.

Lawal stated this when he addressed a group of party faithful in Gusau shortly after his return from Abuja.

He called on supporters to remain calm and law-abiding, saying the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would emerge victorious, even if the rerun was to cover the entire state.

“We have nothing to worry about; we know that the people voted for us before, and they are still ready to vote for us again.

“Our determination to rescue the state is intact, as you can see a number of ongoing developmental projects across the state.


“Our aim is to change the narrative of our socioeconomic development,” he said.

On his part, the state PDP acting Chairman, Muktar Lugga, lauded the party faithful for coming out en masse to welcome the governor.

He said the rally demonstrated love and loyalty to the state administration.

Newspot recalls that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja had declared the governorship election held in Zamfara on March 18, inconclusive.

The three-member panel led by Justice Oyebisi Folayemi and supported by Justice Cordelia Ifeoma Jombo-Ofo and Justice Sybil Nwaka Gbagi nullified the return of Lawal (PDP) as the winner of the governorship poll.

The court ordered a fresh election in three Local Government Areas where elections had not been held previously, or results from various polling units were not counted.
