Court Sacks Legislator For Defecting From APC To PDP
Bororo had in April last year left the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state into the governing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A Federal High Court II sitting in Yola yesterday sacked a Member representing Mubi South Constituency in the Adamawa State House of Assenbly, Hon Musa Umar Bororo for defecting from the All Progressive Congress (APC) to Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
The court ordered the member to vacate his seat with immediate effect for leaving the party under which he won election to the House.
Recall that Bororo had in April 2022 detected from the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.
The High Court, presided over by Justice Saleh Kogo, ruled that Bororo who got into the House of Assembly under the APC, ought not to defect to PDP and remain in office.
Justice Kogo, however, dismissed suits filed against the member representing Mubi North, Hon Shuaibu Dan Musa and member representing Fufure/Gurin, Hon Shuaibu Babas who similarly defected from the APC to PDP at different times.
He said the APC failed to prove its case against the two.
The leadership of the APC in state had dragged the three legislators to court in October last year for defecting to the PDP, and asked the court to order that the Assembly to declare their seats vacant.
