Supreme Court Reverses Sack Of Mutfwang As Plateau Gov

The Supreme Court has reversed the sack of Caleb Mutfwang as Governor of Plateau State.

Mutfwang of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 525,299 votes to beat the All Progressives Congress candidate, Nentawe Yilwatda, who garnered 481,370 votes during the 18 March governorship poll in Plateau State.

The governor’s election was upheld by the Plateau State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal in Jos, the state capital.

However, the Court of Appeal in Abuja, in its judgement delivered on 19 November 2023, overturned  Mutfwang’s victory, prompting him to file an appeal at the Supreme Court to challenge the lower court’s decision.
