He noted that it was vital to uphold the judgement of the Supreme Court which has a consequential order directing the APC to have a fresh primary where Bwacha emerged as the candidate of the party.

The court asserted the candidature of Bwacha while ruling on the case filed by the APC asking INEC not to withdraw its candidate from its portal or ballot paper ahead of the governorship election.
