Nigeria, November 07, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) – 
The Chairman of the Taraba State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar has declared Hajiya Aisha Jumai Alhassan of the All Progressive Congress (APC) winner of the April 11, 2015 governorship election in Taraba State.

The tribunal sitting at the Appeal Court Headquarters in Abuja on Saturday while delivering its judgment held that there was no valid candidate from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that contested the election, adding that the PDP did not hold a valid primary election, the tribunal ruled.

It therefore ordered the immediate swearing-in of the APC candidate.

The PDP candidate Darius Ishaku had been declared winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the APC candidate, Hajiya Aisha Jumai Alhassan had challenged the validity of Governor Darius Ishaku’s election as declared by INEC.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari had picked Alhassan as a minister and while being screened, she told the Senate that she was still battling the case at tribunal.
