Labour Party, ADP Win Plateau Rerun Elections. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has officially announced Daniel Asama, the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), as the victor in the rerun election for the House of Representatives representing Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency.
INEC Returning Officer, Prof. James Garba, declared Daniel Asama as the victor, amassing 66,422 votes in the House of Representatives rerun election for Jos North/Bassa Federal Constituency.
This exceeded the vote count of his closest rival, Mohammed Gwani of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), who garnered 61,670 votes.
Simultaneously, in the rerun election for Plateau North senatorial seat, the Returning Officer, Prof. Nestor Chagok, announced the triumph of the Action Democratic Party (ADP) candidate, Pam Mwadkon Dachungyang.
Dachungyang secured 122,442 votes, surpassing Yakub Muhammad Safiu of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), who garnered 53,980 votes.
Other notable candidates include Barr. Gyang Zi of the Labour Party (LP) with 33,243 votes and Christopher Musa Giwa of the All Progressives Congress (APC) with 39,132 votes.
It is pertinent to mention that the Court of Appeal in Abuja nullified the previous election results of Musa Agah from the PDP and Sen. Simon Mwadkon, mandating a fresh election within 90 days.
In addition, it is noteworthy that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was conspicuously absent from the ballot paper, as directed by the court ruling mentioned earlier.
This exclusion was a direct consequence of the Court of Appeal’s decision, which nullified the election results associated with the PDP candidates and mandated a rerun election within a stipulated 90-day period.
Consequently, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) adhered to this judicial directive by omitting the PDP from the ballot paper during the electoral process.
