Since the release of the date, fear Fear, apprehension and anxiety seems to have gripped the two camps of what the likely outcome would be.
The PDP is seeking to stop the declaration that Gov. Yahaya Bello is Governor, insisting that the Election was marred by widespread irregularities.
The APC is however not taken the allegations with kids gloves described the PDP as a bad loser after lossing woefully the last election.
The Chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Bello, says his party and the governor, would emerge victorious, maintaining that the election was free fair and credible.
This was however not the thinking of the Camp of Wada, with Austin Okai insisting that the election was the worst witnessed in history of the state, said when the over and multiple voting as discovered through the forensic is subtracted, the PDP would emerge victorious I Saturday’s ruling.
