Breaking: Appeal Court sacks PDP Rep member, declares APC’s Dafan winner

An Abuja division of the Court of Appeal has sacked Hon. Isaac Kwalu of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after he was disqualified from contesting the 2023 general election into Shendam/Quaapan/Mikang Federal Constituency of Plateau state.

The court then declared Hon. John Dafa’an of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of the election.

The court in a unanimous decision, led by Justice Okon Efreti Abang, held that PDP’s failure to comply with court orders to hold ward, local government and state congresses rendered it powerless to sponsor candidates.

It ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately issue certificate of return to Hon. Dafa’an as the valid winner of the election.
