Appeal Court Sacks Mutfwang As Plateau Governor

The lead Justice, Elfrieda Williams-Dawodu, directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to give a Certificate of Return to the All Progressive Congress candidate, Nentawe Goshwe, in her verdict on Sunday.

Justice Williams-Dawodu overturned the Tribunal’s decision to confirm Governor Mutfwang‘s election, calling it “highly incompetent.”

According to the court, the tribunal’s decision to dismiss the petition filed by the APC and its candidate on the grounds that the duo had no business meddling in the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on whose platform Mutfwang was elected is a violation of Section 177 of the 1999 Constitution as amended and Section 134 (C) of the Electoral Act.
