Senator Aishatu Dahiru Binani, on Wednesday, said she would appeal the court judgment that nullified the  governorship primaries of the APC in Adamawa State which she won.

A Federal High Court sitting in Yola, presided over by Justice Abdulaziz Anka, had on Friday declared the gubernatorial primaries of the APC in the state null and void, holding that the party failed to comply with its guidelines and constitutional provisions while conducting the exercise.

Malam Nuhu Ribadu, pioneer chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), who lost the ticket to Binani, had challenged her victory in court.

Binani, in a statement, yesterday, said, “The judgment, having disqualified the election, has not given the option to the conduct of a fresh primary election of the party, therefore, my take is to seek judgment that would reaffirm my governorship ticket before the Appeal Court.

“I urge my teeming supporters to remain calm and wait for the outcome of the Appeal Court judgment.

“As APC presidential campaign coordinator for Adamawa State, my mission is to ensure victory for APC candidates in the 2023 general elections.”

Meanwhile, some women in the state have staged a peaceful protest around the state capital over the court’s judgement.

Daily Trust reports that the women, from across the 21 LGAs of the state, marched through the streets, saying that the ruling was a grand conspiracy against women and nothing else.

They carried placards with inscriptions that include ‘No Binani, no election’, ‘The conspiracy against women is too much’, and ‘It’s Binani we want’.

The leader of the protest, Hon. Comfort Ezra, urged all women to stand up for Binani because she is the only gubernatorial hopeful in the whole country.
