POLITICS: Court of Appeal Reserves Judgement on Taraba State Governorship Tussle


  Edeson Online News, today, December 21, 2015, monitored the appeal court hearing involving Taraba State governor, Darius Ishiaku of the PDP and Senator Aisha Alhassan of the APC over Election Tribunal ruling that declared Senator Aisha as the duly elected governor of Taraba State. The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday reserved judgment in an appeal filed by Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba against the nullification
of his electoral victory by a tribunal. Justice Abdul Northerner said the court would later announce the date for the judgment in the appeal.
It would be recalled that Taraba State election tribunal nullified Darius Ishiaku's victory in the April 11 and 25 Governorship election. The court sacked Ishiaku because PDP did not conduct primaries hence His candidacy was invalid according to Electoral Act. Ishiaku in a bid to retain his position went to Appeal court to seek redress.
Senator Aisha Alhassan is currently Nigeria's Minister of Women Affairs.

The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday reserved judgment in an appeal filed by Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba against the nullification of his electoral victory by a tribunal. Justice Abdul Northerner said the court would later announce the date for the judgment in the appeal. The appeal by Ishaku followed the judgment of the Taraba Governorship Election Petition Tribunal on Nov. 7 and awarded victory to Mrs Aisha Alhassan of APC. Mr Kanu Agabi (SAN), Counsel to Ishaku, raised four issues in the appeal. He said the petition was not accompanied by valid statements as the respondents claimed that it was the fault of the registry. Agabi said the respondents claimed that the election was marred with corruption yet claimed victory in the election. He said the respondents also pleaded that Ishaku was not sponsored by the party but later agreed that his sponsorship was not supported by any fact. He complained that 51 witnesses of the appellant were not reviewed by the tribunal and urged their lordships to allow the appeal. Mr Solo Akuma (SAN), Counsel to Peoples’ Democratic Party PDP and Mr Joseph Daudu (SAN), Counsel to INEC urged the court to allow Ishaku’s appeal. However, Mr Abiodun Owonikoko (SAN), Counsel to Alhassan, filed a cross appeal, saying INEC had no right to clear a candidate for election. He urged the court to dismiss Ishaku’s appeal and uphold the tribunal’s judgment.
