“Today, the mandate rightly given to Gov. Bala Mohammed by the good people of Bauchi State has received judicial confirmation and approval.

“We are very happy that the tribunal has done justice and we have come to the end of this case.

“This is a case that was lacking in evidence, very deficient in quantity and quality.

“If they feel appeal is the best way, they may, unfortunately, suffer the same fate because at appeal, you are not going to be allowed to bring any fresh evidence,” said Dikko.
