Taraba PDP wins all LG cases, as Kona insists APC’s dead
The ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Taraba State has won all local government elections cases at the appeal tribunal.
Speaking on the victory, Mr. John Okezie, who led the party to victory at the tribunals, said the verdicts showed that democracy is still the best system of government. He said the wins did not come as a surprise as the appellants had no concrete case.
His words: “In dismissing their cases, the Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Joel Agya, said they lack merit and are incompetent.”
The cases involved four local governments chairmanship and 12 councillorship.
In a related development, Chairman of PDP in the state, Victor Kona, has said All Progressives Congress, APC, is dead in the state.
He said the opposition is in disarray and does not have a place in the state politics. He mocked those with federal appointment, noting that they are merely seeking relevance, adding “even you as a journalist know that we cannot have opposition in this state. They are dead.”
Members of the appeal tribunal included Justice Joel Agya of the High Court of Justice who served as Chairman. Others are Justice Nuhu Adi, Justice Alfred Yakubu, Justice Musa Babajo and Barrister Mike Tyonongo.
