Sacked Yobe Rep to ap­peal tri­bunal rul­ing

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

A mem­ber of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Mr Sabo Garba, of the Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), rep­re­sent­ing Po­tiskum/ Nan­gere fed­eral con­stituency of Yobe State, whose elec­tion was nul­li­fied, has vowed to ap­peal the rul­ing.

The elec­tion pe­ti­tions tri­bunal had sacked the law­maker over al­leged use of ir­reg­u­lar ed­u­ca­tion cer­tifi­cate to run for elec­tion.

Mr Garba, who urged his sup­port­ers to re­main calm, said the is­sue would be rec­ti­fied be­cause he had con­fi­dence in the in­cor­rupt­ible na­ture of the ju­di­ciary.

He ex­pressed belief that with con­crete ev­i­dence and su­pe­rior ar­gu­ment, the ap­peal court will rule in his favour.
