“Following the judgment at the FCT election tribunal, the leadership of Abuja Municipal Area Council has renounced the judgment that was passed in favour of the All Progressive Congress (APC).”
The chairman, therefore, called on his supporters to remain calm and not take laws into their hands as his legal team had already appealed the matter at a competent court.
Maikalangu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was declared winner of February 12 AMAC chairmanship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
He polled 19,302 votes to defeat Murtala Usman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who scored 13,240 votes.
