The All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed a delay in receiving the certified true copy (CTC) of the Court of Appeal judgment that supposedly declared Dr Nasiru Gawuna as the winner of a gubernatorial election.
The party’s legal adviser, Barrister Abubakar Kaka, addressed journalists at the National Secretariat’s media office today, shedding light on the unfolding situation.
Kaka emphasized that the APC has not yet received the official CTC of the judgment, leaving the party in a state of limbo regarding recent reports suggesting an error within the document.
He stressed the necessity of obtaining an error-free CTC before the party can decide based on the judgment.
Kaka highlighted the crucial role of having an accurate and proper document to determine the appropriate course of action for the APC.
”We have not received an official copy of the certified true copy of the judgement. But we will write and get a copy. If the copy conveyed to us still contains this error, we will take steps eventually.
”What we will do, and we have done right now, is to write a request demanding the CTC. Until the CTC containing that error, which is being bantered around, before we will now know what to do next.
”But, I will suggest that whoever may have received the CTC containing that error, if he was an appropriate person and entitled to a copy, would have taken necessary steps to ask us to see.
”But I will say that the court should have taken the necessary steps to make corrections”, he noted.
