The National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal, convening in Jos, Plateau State, has invalidated the election of Dachung Bagos, a two-term member of the House of Representatives from the state.
Bagos, who represents Jos South/Jos East Federal Constituency was elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party during the February 25 National Assembly poll.
Nullifying Bagos’s election, the tribunal declared the Labour Party candidate, Ajang Alfred, as the rightful winner of the poll and ruled that the PDP candidate was not validly nominated by his party to contest the poll.
The PUNCH reports that Bagos was the third PDP candidate whose elections had been nullified in the state by the tribunal.
The other two were Senator Napoleon Bali who represents Plateau South, and Peter Gyengdeng who represents Barkin Ladi/Riyom Federal Constituency.
