2023: No legal impediment against any PDP candidate in Plateau – Mutfwang
From Gyang Bere, Jos
Plateau State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP), Barr. Caleb Mutfwang, has clarified that there is no legal obstacle against any candidate of the party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
He explained that the party is ready to go into the polls as a united front and assured that all votes that would accrue to the candidates and the party would be counted as valid votes contrary to insinuations in some quarters, who are jittery of failure.
Mutfwang disclosed this at the weekend during the inauguration of Atiku-Okowa/Mutfwang-Piyo/Gotom campaign council for Plateau Central Senatorial zone, under the Chairmanship of Engr. Jerry Satmak, Chairman PDP Plateau Central Zone.
He said the party became free of litigations following the dismissal of suit No. FHC/J/C5/64/2022 by the Federal High Court Jos, filed by Augustine Timkuk Dandam, an aspirant for Langtang North-North State Constituency, against the PDP, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and others.
Mutfwang said the dismissed suit was the only legal stumbling block orchestrated by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the State to frustrate the PDP from presenting candidates in the forthcoming elections.
The governorship candidate hailed the judiciary for restoring integrity to the electoral process, giving hope to the common man, and making Plateau people proud.
He also added that that henceforth, there is no legal impediment against the PDP, as the back door the APC wanted to follow has been shut.
