Moses Sule, the Speaker of the Plateau State Assembly, was removed from his position by the state election petitions tribunal.
The legislator, who was elected on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP platform, was dismissed by the election petition tribunal sitting in Jos.
Together with Danjuma Azi, the assemblyman who represented the Jos North West seat, he was dismissed.
Former House Majority Leader Naanlong Daniel and APC colleague Mark Na’ah were both deemed winners by the tribunal.
Because the PDP lacked the necessary party organization, the petitioner said, the Sule and Azi should not have been sponsored.
The tribunal, presided over by Muhammad Tukur, issued a ruling finding that PDP lacked legitimacy as an electoral sponsor for the respondents.
He reasoned that because the party lacked cohesion, “nothing can stand on nothing.”
