Tribunal removes Plateau’s PDP Representative from office


The National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal, convening in Jos, Plateau State, has rendered void the election of Dachung Bagos, a two-term member of the House of Representatives from the state, who represents the Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency under the banner of the Peoples Democratic Party during the National Assembly poll on February 25.

In nullifying Bagos’s election, the tribunal has proclaimed Ajang Alfred, the Labour Party candidate, as the legitimate victor of the election.

The tribunal’s verdict rests on its determination that the PDP candidate was not properly nominated by his party for the contest.

Notably, Bagos is the third PDP candidate in the state to have their elections nullified by the tribunal, following Senator Napoleon Bali representing Plateau South and Peter Gyengdeng representing Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency.
