Plateau State youths protest appeal court sacking of Mutfwang Governor Caleb Muftwang has been sacked by the Appeal Court

A Court of Appeal in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital has sacked Governor Caleb Muftwang of Plateau State and declared Dr Nentawe Yilwatda as the 2023 Plateau Governorship election winner.

Muftwang, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the March 18 governorship election was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission but the Yilwatda and the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenged his victory.

In their appeal at the election tribunal, Muftwang was upheld as Plateau State governor but Yilwatda appealed the verdict and the appellate court upturned it.

The Plateau State governor is expected to take his case to the Supreme Court.
