Senator Bwacha prevails in the Taraba APC rerun
Senator Yusuf Yusuf received 5 votes out of the 796 accredited delegates, while Senator Bwacha won the Taraba APC rerun primary with 778 votes.
Senator Yusuf Yusuf received 5 votes out of the 796 accredited delegates, and he received 778 votes to defeat him.
At various points, the APC governorship primary poll was declared invalid by two Federal High Courts in Jalingo and Abuja, and a new primary was mandated within 14 days.
However, the Court of Appeal in Yola restored Bwacha as the party’s candidate in the state. But 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 ruling should be overturned and upheld the trial court’s decision to order a new primary election.
