The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lauded its members in Adamawa for remaining calm and law abiding in spite of Supreme Court ruling that confirmed election of Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Press had reported that the Supreme Court on Monday, dismissed the appeal challenging the election of Ahmadu Fintri as duly elected Governor of Adamawa State.

The apex court held that the All Progressives Congress, APC, and its candidate, Jibrilla Bindow, failed to prove their allegation that Fintri emerged through over-voting.

Reacting, a statement signed on Wednesday by the State Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Mohammed Abdullahi said the party accepted the ruling in good faith but with some reservations.

“Litigation is part of the electoral process that is aimed at deepening our democracy which is guaranteed by the Constitution and the electoral act.

“The party which always encourages its members to remain law abiding exploited the legal option and pursued same to its logical conclusion. The process has now come to an end with the verdict of the apex Court which we have accepted in good faith with some reservations.
