In an interview on Channels Television's Politics Today on Friday, the governor explicitly stated, "I came in only to be a governor. I did not come in to be a chairman, a senator, or a member of the House of Representatives. I don’t have any dreams for those offices."

“I have no dream of becoming even president. I have no dreams for that. I can tell you categorically that Abdullahi Sule would not go for Senate after leaving office. By the time I finish my eight years, I can do whatever I want to do.

“You can take it from me confidently that I have no intention to run for the office of a senator. You can keep this tape and play it one day.”

The governor also said that he was expecting to win the Supreme Court judgment, adding that he could now get to work as the court case was over.

Sule served his first term as Nasarawa state governor from 2019 to 2023 on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

However, Sule ran another four-year tenure in the 2023 governorship election against the opposition – the Peoples Democratic Party, and its governorship candidate, David Ombugadu.

Ombugadu dragged Sule to court, challenging his 2023 election victory.

The Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal had, on October 2, sacked the governor and declared Ombugadu winner of the poll.

After the judgment, Sule approached the appeal court where he was declared the winner of the election.

However, Justice Kudirat Kekere-Ekun of the Supreme Court, on Friday, upheld the election of Sule as the state governor.

Sule noted that his major aim is to rule the state, and not run for the Senate or House of Representatives.
