BREAKING: Court nullifies APC governorship primary in Taraba

A federal high court has nullified the governorship primary election that produced Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha as the candidate of APC in the 2023 election in Taraba state.

This was according to Justice Simon Amobeda’s judgment on Tuesday, September 20, 2022.

An aggrieved aspirant, David Kente had dragged the party and its candidate to court over the recognition of Bwacha as the candidate of the party.

The court then directed that a fresh governorship primary election be conducted within 14 days.

The court also ordered Bwacha to stop parading himself as the governorship candidate of the APC and INEC to stop recognising Bwacha as a candidate.

He argued that it is not possible for all the primary results to have the same handwriting while the returning officer declared that no primary was held in the state at the police headquarters due to security threats.

Reacting to the judgment, counsels for the APC and sacked candidate stated that they will study the judgment before either proceeding to the Appeal Court or submitting to a fresh primary.

Justice Amobeda described as inappropriate, the alleged false declaration of results at the Danbaba Suntai Airport Jalingo before jetting out of the state via a private jet by the returning officer.
