The panel also held that it is their view that court orders were not fully complied with by the PDP as 12 LGAs didn’t participate in the congress.

The court however ordered a re-run for the Plateau North Senatorial seat, to be conducted in 90 days

The Court cited non-compliance with a subsisting court order from the Plateau State High Court made since 2020 for the PDP to conduct Congress before nominations, as a key factor in their decision.
