The Supreme Court of Nigeria has dismissed the appeal filed before it by the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sani Danladi, in the March 9, 2019, Taraba State Governorship election, challenging his disqualification by the Federal High Court in Jalingo.

A five-man Panel of the Supreme Court headed by the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Tanko Mohammed, dismissed the appeal filed by Mr. Danladi for being incompetent and failing to meet the requirements of the law.

Mr. Danladi was disqualified from contesting the 2019 Governorship election in Taraba state on March 6, 2019, by the Federal High Court, Jalingo presided over by Honourable Justice Stephen Dalyop Pam.

The Court based its decision on allegations of false declaration of age by Mr Danladi in the documents provided to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

However, on March 7, 2019, the Court of Appeal sitting in Yola stayed the execution of the judgment of the lower in favour of Mr. Danladi, which enabled him to stand for the March 9, 2019 Governorship election in Taraba State.

But the appellate Court subsequently struck out the Appeal for being incompetent.

Mr. Danladi further appealed to the Supreme Court which affirmed the judgment of the appeal court. (Channels TV)
