Breaking: Plateau APC’s Nentawe Emerges Victor as Appeal Court Nullifies Gov. Mutfwang’s Election

In a groundbreaking ruling on Sunday, Justice Elfrieda Williams-Dawodu, leading the judiciary panel, directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a Certificate of Return to Nentawe Goshwe, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate.

Justice Williams-Dawodu criticized the Tribunal’s decision to uphold Governor Mutfwang’s election, labeling it as “highly incompetent.” The court asserted that the Tribunal’s dismissal of the APC’s petition, based on the argument that they had no business interfering in the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was a violation of Section 177 of the 1999 Constitution as amended and Section 134 (C) of the Electoral Act.

 

This verdict marks a significant turn of events in the electoral dispute, reshaping the political landscape and challenging the Tribunal’s initial decision.
