The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja, has sacked Caleb Mutfwang of the People’s Democratic Party as the Governor of Plateau State.
The judge of the Appellate court, Justice Okong Abang, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to withdraw Mutfwang’s Certificate of Return and give it to the All Progress Congress Governorship candidate, Nentawe Yiltwatda.
The judge also noted that the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal was in error with their judgement.
Recall that the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal had earlier dismissed the petition Nentawe filled against Governor Mutwang, declaring him as the duly elected governor of Plateau state.
However, the Appeal Court on Sunday, November 19, ruled that “The Tribunal was in error when it said the appellants lacked the right to contest the conduct of the election.
“Tribunal was hard on the appellant when it likened the appellant to one crying more than the bereaved.
“If the appellant finds his neighbor with a goat that doesn’t belong to him, there is nothing wrong if he complains or raises the alarm”
