In response to the Appeal Court’s decision to remove Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang, Yusuf Gagdi made this claim in an interview with Arise Television. He cited the lack of a PDP structure in the state.
According to him, he said, “what the order of the court was saying at that moment was that election was conducted in not up to three or six local governments in Plateau State.”
“Plateau State has 17 local governments. A member of the PDP who participated in that congress took PDP to court and said that you cannot conduct state congress with delegates that was produced by only six local governments. The court granted an order that PDP should wait till the legitimacy of the matter is considered.
