The Supreme Court of Nigeria has overturned the decision of the Court of Appeal, Yola Division, which on November 24, 2022, reinstated Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s governorship candidate for the upcoming 2023 general elections.
Bwacha was re-nominated as the party’s candidate in the state by the Yola Court of Appeal.
At various points, the APC governorship primary election was declared invalid by two Federal High Courts in Jalingo and Abuja, and a new primary was mandated within 14 days.
However, fellow candidate Sabo Kente appealed the appellate court’s decision to reinstate Bwacha as the APC candidate to the Supreme Court.
A five-member Supreme Court panel ruled that the Court of Appeal’s decision should be overturned and upheld the trial court’s decision to order a new primary election.
