Court Cancels APC Governorship Primary Election In Taraba

The governorship primary poll that selected Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha as the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), for the 2023 election was declared invalid on Tuesday by the Federal High Court in Jalingo, presided over by Justice Simon Amobeda.

In a decision on a lawsuit brought by one of the candidates for governor, Chief David Sabo Kente, Justice Amobeda ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to hold a new governorship primary in the state within 14 days.

Additionally, the court ordered Bwacha to stop posing as the APC’s candidate for governor and INEC to stop recognizing him as a candidate.
