The former minister noted that as a democrat, he would pursue his case at the Court of Appeal till he reclaims his stolen mandate.

He insisted that he won the April 11 governorship election with majority of lawful votes cast, but was rigged out.

Maku lost the April election to Gov. Umaru Al –Makura of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a victory that was confirmed by the Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday.

The Justice Halima Mohammed- led three-man tribunal in its ruling dismissed Maku’s petition for lacking in merit.
