Governor Lalong Wins As Supreme Court Dismisses Useni’s Allegation

David Ugbabe

The Supreme Court on Monday, dismissed the appeal filed by Senator Jeremiah Useni and the PDP who challenged the return of Simon Lalong as the duly elected Governor of Plateau State.

A unanimous judgment under the auspices of Justice Adamu Galinje who headed the seven-man panel of the apex cour affirmed the election Lalong.

The Supreme Court held that Useni's appeal lacked merit. It held that the Senator and PDP failed to prove the allegations levelled against the victory of Lalong of APC in the March 9 governorship election in Plateau.
