Most election Petitions challenging the conducted elections by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Plateau State on 25th February and 18th March, 2023, have proceeded to the Court of Appeal, Jos Division, as decisions on them have been delivered one way or the other by the Lower Tribunal.

The first set of Judgments passed by the National/State Houses of Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal in Jos, Plateau State on Petitions filed by Mohammed Alkali Adamu and the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), the ones filed by Amb. Chris Giwa and Ibrahim Baba Hassaan and the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Gyang Zi (Esq) challenging Hon. Musa Avia Agah and Sen. Simon Mwadkon, are already in Appeal. REALITY gathered.

The other sets of Judgments are those filed by Hon. Vincent Vinman and the APC against Beni Lar and the PDP, Nanbol Listick and the APC against Hon. Nanbol concerning Langtang Central State Constituency and that filed by Rt. Hon. Yakubu Sanda concerning Pengana State Constituency, among others. The Counsel to PDP has already indicated that the party is going to appeal all.

More also, there are strong indications that, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda, would also be heading to the Appeal Court as his Counsel, Edward Pwajok (SAN) had informed the Governorship Tribunal, after Judgment was delivered on the Petition Dr. Nentawe and the APC filed challenging the victory of the incumbent Governor, Caleb Mutfwang and the PDP over structure and qualification yesterday.
