Residents have occupied major streets of Jos in jubilation, as the Governorship Election Tribunal, on Friday upheld the victory of Mr Caleb Mutfwang as elected governor of Plateau State.
The tribunal, sitting in Jos, dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Congress (APC), against the election of Mutfwang, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday.
Miss Grace Jonathan, one of the residents, described the verdict as victory for democracy.
“We have come out to rejoice with the governor over his victory at the tribunal This is not about political party, but the good and progress of our state.
The tribunal had ruled that the PDP held valid congresses in the state. The tribunal also held that the issue of nomination and sponsorship of a candidate was solely a pre-election matter.
