Shehu Sani Shehu Sani

Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has reacted to the statement made by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate in Kogi state, Murtala Ajaka, that he will not go to court.

Ajaka said the off-cycle governorship election was rigged but he will not challenge the outcome in court.

Sani said what Ajaka meant when he said he wouldn’t go to court is that the “Judiciary is the Uzodinma of the common man.”

He stated this via his X page (formerly known as Twitter) @ShehuSani “SDP Ajaka said he will not waste his time going to court…He meant Judiciary is the Uzodinma of the common man.”

Meanwhile, reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Ahmed Ododo as the winner of Saturday, November 11, governorship election in Kogi state.

INEC returning officer, Johnson Urama, said Ododo had a total of 446,237 votes to defeat his closest rival, SDP's Ajaka, who polled 259,052 votes. Melaye came third with 46,362 votes.
