Tribunal sacks another PDP lawmaker in Plateau, declares APC candidate winner

The National State Houses of Assembly election Tribunal has upturned the election of Timothy Dantong of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and declared Moses Dachum of All Progressives Congress as winner of the March 18, Riyom state constituency of the Plateau State House of Assembly Election.

Justice B.M Tukur-led panel held that at the time of the election, PDP had no valid structure to fill in a candidate as the party was still in disobedience to a court order of Justice S P Gang of Plateau State High Court delivered on November 26, 2020.

NEWS FLASH reports that the tribunal had before now nullified the election of PDP senator and other lawmakers of the ruling party in the state on the ground that the primaries that produced them were in disobedience to court’s ruling.
