A Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday dismissed a suit filed by the All Progressives Congress seeking the removal of Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State for defecting from the party to the Peoples Democratic Party on Aug. 1, 2018. Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment, refused to grant the request on the ground that similar suits were voided by the Court of Appeal in several judgments. The judge, who held that the case of APC failed and lacked merit in view of the position of the Court of Appeal on similar matters, dismissed the suit. Recall that Tambuwal, who was elected as governor on the APC’s platform, had on Aug. 1, 2018, defected to the PDP less than a year before the expiration of his tenure.
