Spontaneous Jubilation As Bauchi Election Tribunal Upholds Bala Mohammed’s Victory

By Musa Ude, Asst. Nothern Editor

A spontaneous jubilation broke out among a cross section of Bauchi residents who trooped out on Monday to celebrate the victory of Governor Bala Mohammed of PDP at the Election Petition Tribunal.

The tribunal had dismissed the petition of ex- governor Mohammed Abubakar and APC, upholding the election of  the PDP candidate.

The residents chanted victory songs and wielded placards with various inscriptions as they paraded in convoy along the streets.

Some of the placards read “Bauchi is for Bala” and “Support Bala for progress of the state” among others.

Monitored reports say display by motorcyclists and horse riders added colour to the celebration.

One of the celebrants, Mr Ishiaku Yaya, said they were using the motorcycles, sticks and all other various musical instruments and vans to express their satisfaction over the judgement.
