BREAKING: Supreme Court Upholds Mutfwang’s Election as Plateau Governor

The Supreme Court has set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal sacking Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State.

The court, in a judgment on Friday, upheld the appeal filed by Muftwang on the ground that it was meritorious.

In the lead judgment, Justice Emmanuel Agim, the court affirmed the judgment of the election tribunal which had dismissed the petition by the APC and its candidate.

Justice Agim held that Muftwang was qualified to contest the election because the primary election that produced him was well conducted by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP.

The court held that the tribunal lacked the jurisdiction to hear the petition that queried the nomination and sponsorship of Mutfwang and that the APC, not being a member of the PDP lacked the right to challenge the way it got its candidate.
