Recall that the Tribunal on Monday, 2nd of October 2023, ruled that Ombugadu of the Peoples Democratic Party was the lawful winner of the March 18 polls, rendering the incumbent Governor an illegitimate occupant of the governorship seat in the state.

Dissatisfied with the verdict, the APC and Sule rejected the judgement and instructed its legal team to proceed to the appellate court for an appeal.
