SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS BALA MOHAMMED & SIMON LALONG’S ELECTIONS AS GOVERNORS

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal by the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Jeremiah Useni,
challenging the election of Governor Simon Lalong of
Plateau state in the March 9, 2019 governorship election.
In the lead judgement by Justice Adamu Galinje, the
Supreme Court held that the appeal failed to establish
allegations against Governor Lalong and APC.
The panel unanimously ruled that the allegation of
substantial non-compliance with the Electoral Act and INEC
Guidelines in the election, non-qualification and false
information were not proved.
The panel said the claim that Governor Lalong did not
disclose his former name, which was Simon Sule Lalong,
which was later changed to Simon Bako Lalong in a
publicised ‘change of name’ publication is not of a
substantial nature to have his status.
