Abuja (Sundiata Post) – The Plateau State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Jos has affirmed the election of Caleb Mutfwang of PDP as Governor of Plateau State and dismissed the Petition filed by Dr. Nentawe Yilwada Goshwe of the APC.
Dr. Nentawe had approached the Tribunal challenging the declaration of Mutfwang by INEC as Governor of Plateau State alleging that as at the time of the election Mutfwang was not qualified to contest having not been validly nominated and sponsored by his party (PDP), as the party had no structure as at the time of the said election.
However in its Judgment on Friday, the Tribunal dismissed the Petition for lacking in merit.
Governor Muftwang lawyers told the court that the APC does not have the right to interfare in the internal affare of another party.
“You cannot be in your house and be looking at another man’s compound”, a lawyer representing Governor Muftwang told the court
