Zamfara: ‘My govt is on a rescue mission – Gov Lawal reacts to Supreme Court victory


Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State has called on the opposition parties to collaborate with his administration on its rescue mission, emphasising that the recent Supreme Court verdict was a victory for the people of Zamfara.

Recall that on Friday, January 12th 2024, the Apex court set aside the decision of the Court of Appeal Abuja, which declared the Zamfara Governorship Election inconclusive.

“Delivering the lead decision of the Supreme Court, Justice Emmanuel Agim described the judgement of the lower Court of Appeal as perverse and lacked evidential foundation.

In a statement by the Governor’s spokesman, Sulaiman Bala Idris, the Apex court verdict reflected the people’s desire for positive development and progress.

According to the statement, ”working together is critical to achieving sustainable state development. The success of our collective efforts depends on the active collaboration of all stakeholders.


“Let’s prioritise collaboration and work towards a better future for our state, the statement added.

“I am thrilled to have received affirmation of my election by the Supreme Court today. This verdict will boost our morale in fulfilling campaign promises.

“Today’s victory is confirmation of the collective decision made by the people of Zamfara State during the governorship election held in March last year. This victory is for all the people of Zamfara State.

“By my campaign manifesto, which serves as a guide for our rescue mission, my administration has taken swift action to liberate Zamfara from the shackles of poor governance.

“I am urging all people of Zamfara, including opposition parties, to unite and work together to rebuild and restore the state.

“My administration is on a mission to rebuild the state and the Supreme Court’s decision is a victory for the people who trusted me.”
