Following last Saturday’s ruling of the Taraba state election petition tribunal which annulled the governorship election, the secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state seems to have been deserted.
According to Leadership report, the members of the PDP deserted the secretariat as none of the officials were found in any of the offices while the few who were there wore grim faces.
The tribunal had at the weekend sacked the state governor, Darius Ishaku, and announced Aisha Alhassan of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the April 2015 governorship election.
While supporters of the PDP are still busy lamenting over their loss, supporters of the APC were seen jubilating round the streets, carrying placards and banners with description written “Mama Taraba Tadawo, Ishaku yatefi”.
Reactions have been trailing last Saturday’s verdict of the governorship election petitions tribunal that ordered the incumbent governor, Darius Ishaku to vacate office with immediate effect.
Reacting to the verdict, the PDP called the decision “bizarre”, adding that the Taraba tribunal ruling showed another example of interference by the judiciary with the executive.
