The supporters of APC were seen discussing how they wished the verdict of the apex court on the Sokoto State gubernatorial poll would go the way a that of IMO State.
Supporters of PDP, on the other hand, were seen praying for Governor Tambuwal so that the Supreme Court judgment would go in his favour.
The party explained that it was sad that lmo fell to APC, adding that since the Supreme Court judgment is final, there is nothing the party could do than to re-strategize for future elections.
They were heard praying that what consumed others will not consume Tambuwal, as they claimed that the governor is a child of destiny.
