Former presidential spokesman and publisher of Point-blank news, Jackson Ude, has slammed the governor of Plateau State, Caleb Mutfwang, after he was booted out of office by the court of Appeal on Sunday.
In what has been described as a questionable judgement, the lead Justice, Elfrieda Williams-Dawodu, in her ruling, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a Certificate of Return to the candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Nentawe Goshwe.
Justice Williams-Dawodu set aside the judgment of the Tribunal which affirmed the election of governor Mutfwang, describing it as highly incompetent.
According to the court, the decision of the tribunal to dismiss the petition filed by the APC and its candidate on the ground that the duo had no business meddling in the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on which platform Mutfwang was elected is in breach of Section 177 of the 1999 Constitution as amended and Section 134 (C) of the Electoral Act.
But Jackson while reacting to the judgement of the court in a post on his official X handle, said that he warned Mutfwang ahead of time but was ignored by the governor.
