The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the tribunal on Wednesday declared Dr Nasiru Gawuna of the All Progressives Congress as the rightful winner of the March 18 governorship election.

Yusuf, who contested on the banner of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), described the tribunal’s verdict as “unfair” and “a miscarriage of justice”. He vowed to appeal against the judgement, and urged his supporters to remain calm.

I call on our people to remain calm. We will appeal the judgement and we are sure justice will be done.
