The National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal, convening in Jos, Plateau State, has rendered a significant verdict by nullifying the election of a two-term House of Representatives member in the state, Dachung Bagos. Bagos, who had been representing the Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency, secured his seat as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party during the National Assembly poll held on February 25.
In a decisive move, the tribunal invalidated Bagos’s election, asserting the rightful winner of the poll to be Ajang Alfred, the candidate of the Labour Party. The ruling stipulated that the PDP candidate had not received valid nomination from his party to participate in the election.
It was reported that Bagos was the third PDP candidate whose elections had been nullified in the state by the tribunal.
The other two were Senator Napoleon Bali who represents Plateau South, and Peter Gyengdeng who represents Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency.
Again, tribunal rules that the petitioners APC and Vincent Venman could not prove noncompliance.
Also that, PDP is not qualified to sponsor, Hon. Beni Lar of the house of representatives, representing Langtang north/south federal constituency of Plateau State.
The PDP had a faulty foundation and could not have sponsored, Hon. Beni Lar.
Hon. Beni Lar of the PDP sacked, Hon. Vincent Venman of the APC in, as member representing Langtang north/south federal constituency of Plateau State.
