Court cancels APC gubernatorial primary in Taraba

Court nullifies APC governorship primary in Taraba

The gubernatorial primary election that produced Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as the All Progressives Congress nominee in the 2023 election was overturned on Tuesday, September 20 by a Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo and presided over by Justice Simon Amobeda.

The judgment was delivered in a case brought by one of the ruling party’s gubernatorial hopefuls, Leader David Kente.

Justice Amobeda asked the Independent National Electoral Commission to immediately stop recognizing Bwacha as a candidate and to hold a new gubernatorial primary in the state within 14 days.

Bwacha has also been ordered by the court to stop running as a candidate for the APC governorship in Taraba State.
