The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba state, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha has been sacked by federal high court in Jalingo, the state capital.
Delivering judgment in a suit filed against Bwacha by one of the APC governorship candidates, David Sabo Kente, on Tuesday, the presiding judge, Simon Amobeda, held that no governorship primary election was held in Taraba state.
The judge ordered that a fresh primary election should be conducted within 14 days.
The court also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to stop recognising Bwacha as the party’s governorship candidate.
Amobeda further ordered that Bwacha, who is the senator representing Taraba south, to stop parading himself as the governorship candidate of the APC.
The judge condemned the false declaration of results at Danbaba Suntai Airport, Jalingo by the returning officer who afterwards left the country on a private jet.
The counsel of the APC, in a reaction to the judgment said the party will study the judgment and decide whether or not to proceed on appeal or conduct a fresh primary election.
