Speaking with the BBC Hausa in an interview, on Wednesday, said, “How I wish you are here you would have seen by yourself. I am very happy with the judgement. We thank Almighty God. We also thank the judiciary for allowing justice to prevail.

“I was not surprised because we all have seen what happened during the election. Secondly, people have been praying for our party seeking God’s intervention to get back our seat.”

On the decision of the NNPP to go to appeal, Ganduje said that’s the provision of democracy.

Ganduje further called on the people of the state to continue praying for peace and development, adding that they already laid the foundations of developmental projects in the state which they will put on in the future.
