The Plateau State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has on Friday affirmed Caleb Mutfwang of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), as the winner of the 2023 governorship election of the state.
The Tribunal sitting in Jos dismissed the petition filed by Nentawe Goshwe of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Nentawe had approached the Tribunal challenging the declaration of Mutfwang by INEC as Governor of Plateau State.
He alleged that at the time of the election, Mutfwang was not qualified to contest having not been validly nominated and sponsored by his Party (PDP) as the Party had no structure at the time.
However in its judgment on Friday, the Tribunal dismissed the Petition for lacking in merit.
