Forum expresses concerns over Appeal Court verdicts of Plateau National Assembly Members

From Tongnaan Bawa, Jos

A group under the aegis of the Forum of Former Youth Leader Veterans (FFYLV) in Plateau state has expressed concerns over the ongoing delivery of judgment by the Court of Appeal which has created uncertainties, fears, doubts and apprehension in the political landscape of the state.

Chairman of the forum Yakubu Ibrahim disclosed this while addressing Journalists in Jos on Monday, in what they called “The mishap of justice and the suppression of the collective will of Plateau people by the Appeal Court.”

According to him, the victories of Sen. Simon Mwadkhon, senator representing Plateau North, Musa Agah, member representing Bassa/Jos North constituency and  Isaac Kwallu, member representing Shendam, Mikang Qua’anpan both at the polls as well as the election tribunal truly represent the choice of the people and nothing should deny the people their rights.

They warned that the state and its people are peace-loving adding that any efforts by some people to suppress their collective resolve would certainly be resisted. ” The people have expressed their choices in the legitimate ballots. It is on records that PDP was returned elected both at the state and the fuel level.

The group further urged the Supreme Court to wade into the apparent destruction of legal precedence as seen by the recent judgements in the case of Plateau state legislators and return the mandate of the people to the legitimate owners.
