Tribunal Sacks Taraba Governor, Declares ‘Mama Taraba’ Winner

The Taraba State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja has declared the All Progressive Congress, APC, candidate winner of the April 11 gubernatorial election in the state.

The tribunal sacked Darius Ishaku, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, and ordered that the APC candidate, Jummai Alhassan, recently appointed minister by President Muhammadu Buhari, be sworn into office.

Mrs. Alhassan, a former senator, will be Nigeria’s first female governor if Mr. Ishaku fails to challenge the ruling, or loses the appeal.
