The PDP Appeal Screening Panel has set aside the disqualification of the Adamawa State Acting Governor, Umar Fintiri, saying he can contest the State Governorship by-election.
The Chairman of the Appeal Panel, Senator James Manager declared that the acting governor has the constitutional right to contest.
The Panel handed Fintiri his provisional certificate of participation.
APC leaders had approached the Acting Governor offering him the sole ticket for the election, if he defected to their party.
Finitri told newsmen that he had no plans to accept any offer from the APC. He noted that the Appeal Panel has done the right thing.
