Auwal Jatau said the victory at the court does not only affirm the strength of democracy, but solidifies the commitment of the present administration of Governor Bala Mohammed towards the progress, development, and the general well being of the good people of the state. Auwal according to statement by his media aide, Malam Muslim Lawal in Bauchi on Friday, said the resounding victory at the appeal court is a triumph for all the people of the state as it signifies the PDP led administration’s collective endeavors in advancing good governance, providing quality education, ensuring accessible healthcare, fostering economic growth, and promoting peace and unity.

“I want to also express my sincere appreciation to the Appeal Court for ensuring a fair and transparent judicial process. The verdict is a testament to the efficacy of our justice system and its commitment to upholding the principles of justice, equity, and the rule of law. Our Governor’s victory is a victory for progress, for the downtrodden, and for every citizen who has entrusted their hopes and dreams to our administration.”

Auwal Jatau expressed confidence in the PDP-led administration’s dedication to the well-being of the people of Bauchi state and the progress of the state. He emphasized that the victory serves as a renewed motivation to intensify efforts, maintain focus, and fulfill campaign commitments. The administration will prioritize the welfare of the people by fostering a conducive environment for businesses, improving infrastructure, and ensuring inclusivity in the pursuit of development.
