Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani has responded to the recent tribunal ruling regarding the 2023 governorship election in the state. In a personally signed statement issued on Thursday, Governor Sani expressed his appreciation for the Tribunal’s decision, which he views as a confirmation of the mandate entrusted to him by the people of Kaduna State.
Contrary to earlier reports suggesting that the Tribunal declared the election inconclusive and called for a rerun, Governor Sani asserted his victory in the statement. He emphasized that this victory belongs to the people and called on candidates from all political parties to collaborate to advance Kaduna State’s progress.
The statement read as follows:
THE KADUNA ELECTION PETITION TRIBUNAL JUDGEMENT IS A CLEAR AFFIRMATION OF THE POPULAR MANDATE GIVEN TO ME BY THE PEOPLE OF KADUNA STATE
I am highly delighted and humbled by the ruling of the Election Petition Tribunal affirming my victory in the 2023 Kaduna State Governorship Elections. The judgement is an unequivocal affirmation of the popular mandate graciously given to me by the good people of Kaduna State. I commend the Tribunal for their thoroughness and lucidity. They have enriched our jurisprudence and practice of electoral democracy.
I commend my dear brother, Hon. Isah Ashiru Kudan, for approaching the Tribunal to vent his grievances. This clearly demonstrates his belief in the principles of democracy and the imperative of civility in the conduct of political actors.
I call on Hon. Isah Ashiru and members of the opposition parties in Kaduna State to join hands with us as we strive to move our dear state to a higher level. We are all stakeholders in PROJECT KADUNA. It is not about personal glory.

Our people want all hands to be on deck to address the state’s myriad challenges. If political actors are united, a clear signal will be sent to our people that our state’s quest for peace, security, progress, and development are the driving forces of our participation in politics.
I call on our party faithful to moderate their celebration of this victory. They must individually and collectively extend an olive branch to our brothers and sisters in other political parties. Instead of celebrating, we should pray to the Almighty God for His continued guidance and protection. Let us focus on the tasks ahead.
Senator Uba Sani, Governor,
