Mustapha Usman, representing Yola South/Yola North/ Gerei Federal Constituency has been sacked as a member of the lower house of the National Assembly for documents forgery and failure to perform the mandatory one year National Youth Service. He is to be replaced by the person who came second in the APC primaries.
A five-man panel of the court, in a unanimous judgment on Tuesday, upheld an appeal marked: SC/790/2019 from Abdulra’uf Abdulkadir Modibo also of the APC.
The apex court held that aside that Usman forged his credentials, he also did not participate in the National Youth Service Corps scheme.
The five-man panel of the court, led by Justice John Okoro, also ruled that Modibo, who came second in the APC primary, should be issued certificate of return by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
