After Appeal Court sacked 11 lawmakers, PDP lost control of the Plateau Assembly.

Eleven Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmakers in the Plateau State House of Assembly were dismissed by the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Friday, November 24.

The court, led by Justice Okon Abang, ruled that all of the dismissed lawmakers were wasted votes during the March 2023 general elections because of the party’s lack of structure

The panel noted that the PDP violated Article 177 of the 1999 Constitution and could not sponsor candidates in the election. It was subsequently announced that all of the senators who came in second in the March 18 elections had been elected

The dismissed lawmakers are Timothy Danton (Riyom), Limyat Nambol (Langtang North-Central), Moses Sule (Mikang), Salome Wacrek (Pangxin), Bala Hwange (Mang South), Maren Ishak (Bokkan), Maren Ishak ( Bokkans), Maren Ishaku (Bokkans), Maren Ishaku (Bokkans), Maren Ishaku (Bokkos), Dagogot (Quaanpan North), Nannim Langyi (Langtang North North), Nimchak Rims (Langtang South), Danjuma Azi (Jos North West), Gwottson Fom (Jos South), and Abubakar Sani idris (Mangu North).Following this development, the All Progressives Congress took control of the assembly.
