The Court of Appeal has affirmed the election of Senator Hezekia Dimka of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the duly elected representative of Plateau Central senatorial district.
Also, Justice Mudaseer Oniyangi, who read the consensus judgement, dismissed the appeal No. CA/J/EPT/PL/NA/SEN/382/2019, filed by Mr David Paradang of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
The court held that the petitioner/appellant issues 1,2,3 and 4 were incompetent, and affirmed the initial verdict of the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal that had struck them, and subsequently upheld the tribunal’s judgement in favour of the respondents.
Justice Oniyangi said: “Having resolved the entire issues in favour of the respondents, I hold that the appeal is devoid of merits.”
