Uba chose to challenge earlier judgments and he approached the apex court for redress. 

Alia, who is a Catholic priest, was also given a certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The INEC Returning Officer, Prof. Faruk Kuta, said the APC candidate polled 473,933 votes to defeat his closest rival, Titus Uba of the Peoples Democratic Party who scored 223,914 votes.
