Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State has described the appeal Court verdict of his sack as just a “temporary” set back.
A three man panel of judges had nullified the election of Lawal and called for a rerun in three local government areas of Maradun, Birnin-Magaji, and Bukkuyum.
However, in a statement through his spokesman, Idris Sulaiman, Governor Lawal has expressed confidence in the rerun adding that the governor was elected by the people.
Lawal believes his election was a move by the people of Zamfara to question and challenge the practices of the previous administration.
He also revealed his confidence in the will of the people in the rerun polls.
“We will emerge victorious. Our unwavering determination and steadfast commitment leave no room for doubt or fear.
“We faced numerous challenges on the road to victory in the last election but let me assure our people that we are fully committed to going to great lengths to retain this widely acclaimed mandate.”
Governor Dauda Lawal has called for calm in the state, adding that his legal team was thoughtfully reviewing the verdict.
