The All Progressives Congress (APC) have continued to suffer defeat in Adamawa state as the state Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Yola, the state capital , has sacked Shuaibu Dan musa Langa Langa for alleged certificate forgery.

Langa Langa had his election as member representing Mubi North in the Adamawa State Assembly nullified on Monday because he forged a first school leaving certificate, according to the panel.

The tribunal led by  Justice S Akambi, subsequently ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue certificate of return to Suleiman Vokna of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Fielding questions from newsmen, Langa Langa  vowed to seek redress as according to him, “This is just too unbelievable, how on earth at this 21st century that somebody like me to have not finish primary school and I’m parading myself with a fake school leaving certificate? No! It is very very impossible.

” I want to believe that there was a problem somewhere that gave the Court the reason to pronounce a judgement against the truth. But no withstanding in the court of appeal the truth shall be made known to all people to know that the judgment is never what the court said I’m, ” he said.

The tribunal has also nullified the election of Musa Umar  Bororo, member representing Mubi South constituency over bearing inconsistence three names.

The Tribunal nullified Bororo’s election who was elected under the All Progressives Congress (APC) on ground that he is using three names, Musa Umar Bororo instead of “Musa Umar” which is official name in the documentes submitted to INEC.

Bororo, was dragged to the tribunal by Musa Yakubu Dirbishi of PDP.

The court has ordered INEC to issue certificate of return to Dirbishi of PDP to represent the constituency after sacking Bororo.

But while reacting, Musa Bororo said he will appeal  against the  ruling, attesting that his documents bears same name, “Bororo” his third name having affidavit backing thereby making it his official name.

He said the verdict surprise him by the fact that his name is never controversial and his official identity is what the court could held on to nullified his election.
