In the aftermath of recent court rulings that affected political positions in Plateau State, the Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Moses Thomas Sule, and the Deputy Speaker, Hon. Gwottaon Fom, have tendered their resignations.
This development follows the Court of Appeal’s decision to sack the State Governor, Caleb Muftwang, and certain members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State Assembly.
The Appeal Court ruling affected lawmakers such as Simon Mwadkwon and Darlington Nwokocha, leading to a significant shake-up in the political landscape of Plateau State.
In response to these changes, Hon. Gabriel Dawang, the representative for Pankshin North, has emerged as the new Speaker of the Plateau State House of Assembly. Additionally, Timothy Dantong, who represents the Riyom constituency, has been elected as the new Deputy Speaker.
The resignations and subsequent elections indicate a period of transition and adjustment within the Plateau State Assembly, as political dynamics continue to evolve in the aftermath of legal decisions affecting key political figures in the state. The developments are likely to have broader implications for governance and legislative activities in Plateau State in the coming days.
