The Court of Appeal sitting in Jalingo has ordered a stay of execution on the disqualification of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Taraba State, Mr Sani Danladi.
Justice Chidi Uwa gave the order on Thursday, a day after the Federal High Court in Jalingo disqualified Mr Danladi from participating in the coming governorship election in the state.
Also in Kaduna, the Appeal Court sitting there confirmed Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf as thecandidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State for Saturday’s governorship election.
The Appeal Court restrained INEC from removing the name of Engineer Abba Kabir Yusuf and other PDP candidates from the list of 2019 contestants.
In Jalingo, the court stayed the execution of the order of the lower court following a motion ex-parte filed by Mr Danladi and the APC.
He also issued an interim injunction restraining the respondents from taking further steps towards the execution of the judgement of the lower court.
In Abuja, the Court of Appeal, has affirmed Senator Ayogu Eze as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Saturday, March 9, governorship election in Enugu state.
The three-member panel of the appellate court, in a unanimous judgment delivered on Thursday, March 7, upheld the appeal brought before it by the former Ayogu Eze, who challenged an earlier judgment of the Federal High Court in Abuja, which removed him as the party’s governorship.
The court ruled that Eze remains the true governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
