The Taraba State governorship election petition tribunal Saturday afternoon nullified the election of Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Consequently, Chairman of the tribunal, which sat in Abuja, Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar, has ordered that  Aisha Jumai Alhassan of the All Progressives Congress (APC) be sworn in as governor with immediate effect.

Aisha, a minister-designate, had filed a petition at the tribunal challenging INEC’s declaration of Ishaku as winner of that election. She prayed the tribunal to instead declare her winner having scored the highest number of lawful votes.
