The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa says it will appeal the court ruling nullifying the party’s primary which produced Aishatu Binani as its governorship candidate.

 

A federal high court in Yola, on Friday, nullified the APC governorship primary.

 

In a judgment delivered on Friday, the court also declared that there will be no candidate for the APC in the state for the 2023 elections.

 

Binani, the senator representing Adamawa central, defeated Nuhu Ribadu, former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and Jibrilla Bindow, former governor of the state, to win the primary held on May 26.

 

Speaking on the development at a media briefing on Saturday, Raymond Chidama, APC secretary in the state, said this the party received the news with “mixed feelings”.

 

He, however, said the party would appeal the judgment.

 

“We objected to the position of the court for refusing to order for the conduct of a fresh primary election,” he said.

 

 “All avenues of justice would be exploited by the party to ensure equity and fairness through the process of appeal.

 

“I want to assure our members that our party will definitely participate in the 2023 governorship election.”

 

The APC secretary also expressed optimism that the party would be victorious in the 2023 elections.
