A Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo, the capital of Taraba State, has nullified the All Progressives Congress governorship primary election that produced Emmanuel Bwacha as the candidate of the party in the 2023 election.
The nullification follows a petition by one of the aspirants, David Sabo Kente.
The presiding judge, Justice Simon Amobeda in his ruling relied on the evidence before the court that no governorship primary was held in Taraba, ordered a fresh primary within 14 days.
The judge also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to stop forthwith the recognition of Emmanuel Bwacha as the candidate of the party.
Bwacha who is the current senator representing Taraba South was also ordered to desist from parading himself as the governorship candidate of the APC.
