Court nullifies APC governorship primary in Taraba

Our reporter| The Federal High Court Abuja on Monday nullified the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary that produced Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as the party’s governorship candidate for the 2023 general elections.

Presiding Judge, Justice Obiora Egwatu who gave the ruling in a suit instituted by the senator representing Taraba Central, Yusuf Yusuf, 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.

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.
