The Supreme Court of Nigeria has upheld a previous ruling that invalidates Emmanuel Bwacha’s nomination as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba state.
The five-member panel, led by Kudirat Kekere-Ekun, confirmed the decision of the Federal High Court in Jalingo, which had declared in September 2022 that the APC did not conduct a valid governorship primary in the state.
David Sabo Kente, an aspirant in the race, had filed a lawsuit challenging Bwacha’s candidacy.
With the Supreme Court’s ruling, Bwacha will no longer be able to run for governor under the APC ticket.
