Kwara Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq in a reaction through his Chief Press Secretary, Mallam Rafiu Ajakaye, said he did not lose sleep over the matter.
“There is no special feeling about the upcoming judgment. We have nothing to worry about because the case is very clear and the evidences in support of our position are overwhelming and unambiguous.
“The governor doesn’t in the least lose sleep over it. What concerns him and his team is how to ensure that the people of Kwara State continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy in line with the mandate already given to him,” he said..
Also, the chairman of PDP in the state, Engineer Kola Shittu, said he is confident that their candidate will win the case.
“I am confident that the judgment will favour our party and candidate because the case is so straight forward,” Shittu said.
