A spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Campaign Council, Daniel Bwala, has made a claim about the Court of Appeal’s judgement on the Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang. Bwala believes that if the court follows its principles in the Plateau case, the judgement for the Ebonyi governorship election would be predictable.
Bwala expressed his disappointment with the court’s decision to sack Governor Caleb Mutfwang based on improper nomination. He argued that the governor was duly nominated during the party’s primary.
Bwala pointed out that Ebonyi State is facing similar issues in court. He alleged that Francis Nwifuru, the ruling party’s candidate who won the March 18 election, was not qualified to contest the poll.
Bwala stated that if the Court of Appeal’s principles in the Plateau State case are applied to the Ebonyi State case, the judgement should be predictable. He believes that unless the court contradicts itself, the ruling will likely favor the PDP and its candidate, Ifeanyi Odii, who are seeking the nullification of Francis Nwifuru’s election.
