BREAKING: Court sacks Plateau State Governor, Mutfwang, declares APC candidate winner

The Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, has been sacked by the Court of Appeal in Abuja, and Nentanwe Yilwatda Goshwe of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has been pronounced the legitimately elected Governor of Plateau State.

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

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

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

The court also held that contrary to the decision of the tribunal that the issues contained in the petition filed by the appellants were pre-election matters, they were both pre-election and post-election matters and could not have been deemed status barred.
