PDP’s Ishaku Wins It as Appeal Court Rules Against APC’s Mama Taraba

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has validated the election of Darius Ishaku of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as Governor of Taraba State.

The Appeal Court, in its verdict on Thursday, upturned the earlier judgment of the election tribunal and ruled that the method of nomination of a candidate should not be one of the grounds for disqualification for the election as stated in the constitution and the electoral act.

It also held that the issue of PDP primary which produced Governor Darius Ishaku was a pre-election matter that should not have been entertained by the Tribunal.

The court also ruled that only INEC and members of PDP who participated in the primary election has the right to complain.

In the judgment of the court, Senator Aisha Alhassan popularly known as Mama Taraba and the APC were said not to have any right to challenge the election in which Ishaku emerged since none of them is a member of PDP.
