Court of Appeal to Decide Goshwe vs. Mutfwang Election Appeal on November 19, 2023

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has set November 19, 2023, for the judgment on Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda Goshwe’s appeal against Governor Caleb Mutfwang’s election.

The notice, issued by bailiff Dalhatu Mansur on Saturday, detailed the case (Appeal No. CA/J/EP/PL/GOV/52/2023) involving Goshwe, APC, INEC, and Governor Mutfwang Caleb Manasseh of the PDP.

The judgment is scheduled at the Abuja Court of Appeal at noon. In the March 18 governorship election, Mutfwang received 525,299 votes, and Goshwe received 481,370 votes.

Goshwe contested Mutfwang’s election at the tribunal, alleging invalid nomination, electoral non-compliance, and a lack of majority votes.

The tribunal, led by Justice R. Irele-Ifijeh, unanimously dismissed the petition. Unhappy with the verdict, Goshwe appealed, contending that Mutfwang’s nomination was invalid, PDP lacked structure for sponsorship, and there was over-voting and non-compliance with the Electoral Act in the 2023 election.
