Daniel Bwala, a former spokesperson for the presidential candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party PDP has said that the residents of the FCT have since approached the court to allow them to have elected public office holders like governors and Senators.
This, according to Mr Bwala, is against the backdrop of a recent ruling of the Presidential Election Tribunal Court which dismissed the case of 25 per cent as a factor in attaining to be president.
He stated this on Sunday via a post on his verified X formerly known as Twitter.
This medium cannot immediately verify Mr Bwala’s claims. However, the News.ng reported last week how Justice Haruna Tsammani led a five-man panel of judges at the tribulation court and ruled that the FCT does not have a special status in that Nigerians living there are not superior to citizens from other states.
Following the Presidential Election Petition Court’s judgment which states to the effect that Abuja is just like any other state; I am hearing that the natives of Abuja are approaching the court for an order mandating FGN to let them produce their Governor and 3 Senators amongst other peculiarities of a state. What is good for Guinea is also good for Uganda.lollllllllll
