The Plateau Election Petition Tribunal, which met in Jos on Friday, nullified the election of Hon. Moses Sule, Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly and Member of the Mikang State Constituency.
The Tribunal ruled that Hon. Sule was not lawfully nominated for the March 18, 2023 election by his party, the PDP, because the party had no structure at the time of the election, in violation of Justice S P Gang’s November 26, 2020 decision.
According to the Tribunal, all of the PDP’s votes in that election were squandered.
As a result, the Tribunal ordered INEC to remove Hon. Sule’s Certificate of Return and give a fresh one to Hon. Daniel Naanlong of the APC.
