Rt. Hon. Gabriel Dewan, Speaker Plateau House of Assembly, on Saturday, stated that following the Supreme Court Judgement on Friday affirming the election of Governor Caleb Mutfwang, the State Assembly has only eight lawmakers that he recognises, meaning he does not recognise 16 APC lawmakers.
The Speaker, who revealed this to journalists in Jos, added that the judgement of the apex court had overturned the earlier position of the Appeal Court.
“As it stands now, only eight lawmakers are recognised as members of state the assembly,” he said.
Dewan said as a leader of all, he recognises only eight lawmakers.
He said 16 lawmakers the lower court affirmed would not be recognised until the interpretation of the Supreme Court judgement, which ruled that the actions and judgement of the Appeal Court were faulty and an abuse of court processes.
