On the other hand, the APC had the highest votes in seven LGAs of Jos East, Kanke, Kanam, Pankshin, Shendam, Wase, and Jos North.
The election of Caleb Mutfwang of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the governor of Plateau State has been confirmed by the Plateau State Governorship Election case Tribunal, which is based in Jos. Nentawe Goshwe of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has had her case denied.
In an attempt to overturn INEC‘s declaration of Mutfwang as the governor of Plateau State, Nentawe had gone to the Tribunal. He claimed that because Mutfwang had not been duly nominated or endorsed by his Party (PDP), which was in disarray at the time of the election, he was not eligible to run.
On March 20, the INEC Returning Officer in the state, Prof Idris Amali, announced Mutfwang as the winner having scored 525,299 votes, while Yilwatda polled 481,370 votes.
According to the results, the PDP won in 10 local government areas (LGAs), including Barkin Ladi, Bassa, Lantang North, Langtang South, Riyom, Mikang, Mangu, Jos East, Qua’an Pan and Pokkos.
However in its judgment on Friday, the Tribunal dismissed the APC candidate’s petition for lacking in merit.
