Emmanuel Bwacha has reacted to his reinstatement as the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for Taraba State.
HausaToday reports that an Appeal Court sitting in Yola on Thursday, November 24, set aside a Federal High Court ruling that earlier nullified the primaries that produced Bwacha as the party’s standard flag bearer for the 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.
The appellate court ordered that Bwacha’s name be forwarded to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the APC governorship candidate in Taraba.
Reacting shortly after the latest court verdict, Bwacha described the Appeal Court’s ruling in Yola, Adamawa State, as a victory for democracy, the people of Taraba State and the APC.
Bwacha told newsmen through his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Reqwesin Muri, that the Appeal Court judgment was a true reflection of the conduct of the party’s governorship primary election in the state.
He commended the media, supporters and members of the APC in the state for their show of love during the processes.
He said: “We listened to the judgment delivered by the Federal High Court in Jalingo in September, we kept wondering why the Judge ignored all the reports from the national secretariat of the APC, the panel that conducted the primaries also submitted their report but it was ignored.
“We want to thank the supporters of Senator Bwacha, members of APC in the State and the media for standing by the truth till today.
“I also want to assure the people of the State of the commitment of Senator Emmanuel Bwacha to rescue the State from the PDP’s bad governance if elected as the governor of Taraba State come 2023,” Muri stated.
