Mainasara, who represented Potiskum/Nengere Federal Constituency in the 7th House of Repsentatives, was declared winner of the National Assembly election by the election petitions tribunal, last week. The tribunal nullified the election of Rep Sabo Garba of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who reportedly used fake education certificates to run for the election. Speaking to Daily Trust in Abuja, Mainasara said: “This is to testify that the judiciary is now on its toes. I know the forces that are behind this case, but at the end we came out victorious. Obviously, I salute the judiciary as the last hope of the common man.” Asked what he would do if his opponent appealed the case, Mainasara said: “I pity him, because anybody that comes to equity must come with clean hands. This is a person that has worked and retired in the Nigeria Customs, but he now has allegations of school certificate forgery. We may institute fresh charges in EFCC to investigate this matter because he has used tax payers’ money in salaries and allowances.”]]>
