Chief Shuaibu Ataka, Secretary of Chief David Sabo Kente Governorship Campaign Organisation who briefed newsmen in Jalingo on behalf of Chief Kente commended the supreme court justices for giving a sound judgement.

He said that the judgement would serve as a lesson to politicians who felt the society should continue with it’s old  draconian ways.

Ataka also expressed optimism that Chief Kente would win the ticket of the party, expressing his readiness to go into a fresh primary election.

The Secretary further called on the APC supporters in the state to remain calm and wait for the decision of the party’s national Secretariat of  the party. 

Apex News Exclusive recalls that a five man jurists at the Supreme Court on Wednesday nullified the emergence of Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha on the ground that there was no party primary election held in the state.

The supreme court therefore, upheld the judgement of the Federal High Court Jalingo which ordered the party to conduct a fresh primary election for Governorship within 14 days.

It could be recalled that Bwacha approached  Court of Apeal Yola Division which earlier set aside the judgement of the federal high court.
