Appeal Court Upholds Jang’s Election

Jonah JangThe Court of Appeal sitting in Jos, on Friday, upheld the election of ex-Governor Jonah Jang as Senator representing Plateau north senatorial zone.

In arriving at its decision to uphold Jang’s election, the appellate court dismissed a petition filed by the All Progressives Congress and its candidate, Eunice Sambo.

Dissatisfied with the outcome of the election tribunal, the APC had headed to the Appeal Court to challenge the verdict.

Delivering judgment yesterday, Justice J.S Ikyegh said the petitioner could not substantiate exhibits tendered.
