The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, on Friday, sacked eleven lawmakers of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Plateau state assembly.

The panel led by Justice Okon Abang, in a unanimous decision, held that all the sacked lawmakers scored wasted votes at the time of the March 2023 general election because their party lacked structure.

He added that the PDP violated section 177 of the 1999 constitution and, hence could not sponsor candidates in an election.

The court however declared all the second runners-up in the March 18 elections as winners.

Those sacked are; Hon Timothy Dantong (Riyom), Hon. Rimyat Nanbol,- (Langtang North Central), Moses Sule (Mikang), Salome Waklek,-Pankshin, Hon. Bala Fwangji (Mangu South), Hon. Maren Ishaku (Bokkos), Hon. Dagogot (Quaanpan North) and Nannim Langyi,-(Langtang North North).

Others are Nimchak Rims (Langtang South) Hon. Danjuma Azi (Jos North West) Gwottson Fom (Jos South) and Hon. Abubakar Sani Idris (Mangu North)
respectively.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) is now the leading party in the parliament.
