Explainer: Bwacha Cannot Be On Ballot Despite Yola Appeal Court Victory

By P. D Pius esq.



There are two judgments of the Federal High Court nullifying the election of Bwacha as APC candidate. There is the judgment of Federal High Court Jalingo which was instituted by DSK and there is the judgment of Federal High Court Abuja instituted by Sen. Yusuf Yusuf.

The Court of Appeal Yola decision in favour of Bwacha today only set aside the judgment of Federal High Court Jalingo. This means that the Jalingo judgment does not stand any longer. The appeal has nothing to do with the Abuja judgment. Thus, the Abuja judgment of Federal High Court still stands that Bwacha is not a candidate.

It also means that Bwacha will still not be allowed to start campaigns until he gets Court of Appeal Abuja to set aside the judgment of Federal High Court Abuja.

It is like TWO big stones have been placed on his way and he has successfully push one aside, he still need to push the second stone before he can pass as a candidate.

For now, by the judgment of Federal High Court Abuja, there is no APC candidate in Taraba state.
