Justice Obiora Egwatu of the Federal High Court Abuja has nullified the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary that produced Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2023 general elections.
Delivering his ruling, Justice Egwuatu declared that based on submissions made before him by all concerned parties, the purported primary conducted by APC on May 26 this year upon which the party announced Bwacha of APC Taraba South, as its candidate for the 2023 gubernatorial elections, was a nullity.
The ruling was instituted by the senator representing Taraba Central, Yusuf Yusuf.
Bwacha was last month sacked by another Federal High Court in Jalingo, the
Taraba State capital, in a different case instituted by another governorship aspirant, David Kente.
In their separate rulings, the two courts called on the leadership of the APC to conduct a fresh governorship primary in Taraba.
