The Bauchi State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has confirmed Senator Bala Mohammed as the legitimately elected governor of the state.
The decision was made by a three-man panel led by P.T. Kwahar.
The Bauchi Election Petition tribunal dismissed the case submitted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its governorship candidate, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar, a former Chief of Air Staff.
It concluded that there is no compelling basis to annul the election because it was conducted in accordance with the law.
INEC stated in March that Mohammed received 525,280 votes, outnumbering his closest challenger and All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Air Marshal Abubakar, who received 432,272.
