The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Jos, Plateau State, on Monday, have nullified the election of Hon Peter Gyengdeng, as the lawmaker representing Barkin/Riyom Federal Constituency of the state in the House of Representatives.

The tribunal equally declared Fom Chollom of the Labour Party as the validly elected representative for the federal constituency.

The PUNCH reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Gyengdeng of the Peoples Democratic Party winner of the National Assembly poll conducted on February 25, 2023.

But Fom had challenged the PDP candidate’s victory at the tribunal on the ground that he  was not validly nominated by his party claiming that PDP had no valid structure in the state  at the time of his nomination as a candidate.
