Court dismisses appeal against Suswam


  The Court of Appeal sitting in Makurdi on Tuesday dismissed the appeal filed by the defeated PDP gubernatorial aspirant, Terver Khaki, against Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue.

Khaki dragged the governor to court claiming that the primaries were not properly conducted and alleged that Suswam was not educationally qualified to contest the election.

He alleged that the governor forged his secondary school certificate and described the conduct of the primaries as “a charade and stage managed”.

The Federal High Court in Makurdi in 2012 gave judgement in favour of the governor, in which Justice Marcel Awokulehin held that the case was a pre-election matter and a party’s affair.
