- Plateau Governor Sacked, APC Candidate Wins
The Abuja Appeal Court removes Caleb Muftwang as Plateau Governor, declares APC’s Nentawe Goshwe the winner.
Freshreporters News reports that a three-member panel held that Muftwang wasn’t validly sponsored by the PDP, violating the Nigerian Constitution.
In the March 18 election, Muftwang got 525,299 votes, while Goshwe received 481,370 votes.
Goshwe contested Muftwang’s victory, alleging invalid nomination and Electoral Act non-compliance.
The tribunal initially dismissed Goshwe’s petition, prompting an APC candidate appeal.
The Sunday ruling asserts PDP’s failure to validly sponsor the governor, citing violation of a court order.
The court highlights PDP’s non-compliance with a High Court order for a valid party congress.
It emphasizes that qualification is both pre- and post-election, contradicting the tribunal’s stance.
