A five-member panel led by Kudirat Kekere-Ekun delivered the judgment on Wednesday.

A federal high court in Jalingo, Taraba state, first sacked Bwacha as the APC’s governorship candidate in September 2022 in a suit filed by David Sabo Kente, a governorship aspirant.

The Supreme Court affirmed the verdict of the federal high court which held that the APC did not conduct any valid governorship primary in Taraba State that produced Bwacha as governorship candidate.
