He urged opposition parties to work together to ensure the country’s development.

The governor assured the people of his administration’s dedication to realizing democratic dividends.

“We remain resolute in providing a conducive environment for the development of our state.

“Our commitment includes continued efforts to eliminate bandits and criminals through sustained military operations,” Aliyu stressed, calling on all stakeholders for support.

Aliyu emphasized the need for unity to achieve national transformation and appealed for the continued support of the people.

NAN reports that the Abuja Court of Appeal on Monday upheld the judgment of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, confirming Aliyu’s victory in the 2023 polls.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of the state has appealed to the Court of Appeal, dissatisfied with the decision of the gubernatorial election petition tribunal, contesting the victory of Aliyu and his deputy Alhaji Idris Gobir in the 2023 election. (South)
