Taraba tribunal has nullified Governor Darius Ishaku’s election

1 Min Read

The Taraba State election petition tribunal has upheld Taraba Gov Ishaku’s election.

The court said the APC’s petition was not brought by competent applicants, since the first petitioner, Abubakar Danladi, had been disqualified by successive judgements from appearing as a candidate for the APC in the March 9 election.

The court also ruled that the allegations of malpractices brought by the APC did not include sufficient evidence to warrant a nullification.

Mr Danladi and his party had accused the PDP of massive rigging.

The APC also alleged that it had polled a majority of lawful votes.

But a three-member panel of the Court on Friday said the decision of various courts including the Supreme Court which ruled against the candidacy of Mr Danladi in the elections following an intra-party dispute, had rendered the petition incompetent.
