Taraba: ‘Appellate Court’ll Reverse Verdict In Favour Of Darius’

A group known as Taraba Volunteers for good governance has assured Tarabans that the appeal court would revise the ruling of the Taraba State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal that sacked the incumbent governor from office.
Briefing journalists yesterday in Jalingo, the chairman of the group, Alhaji Abdulkadir Zanzago said the tribunal’s ruling was as an affront to democracy.
He stressed that in line with Senator Aisha’s pleadings, the tribunal would have dismissed her petition on the ground of incompetence after she had proceeded to aver facts inconsistent with her grounds of petition.
He explained that the ground of her petition which challenged the nomination and sponsorship of Governor Darius Ishaku was deemed abandoned in line with her pleadings to the contrary, as was held by the appellate court in Amosun vs Daniel.
He informed that the judgement of the election tribunal was an attempt to rob the good people of Taraba State of the mandate given to Governor Darius.
He added that the judgement negates the very tenets and principles of democracy which is government by the majority of the people.
He noted that Governor Ishaku, his party and the people of the state are confident that the appellate court would do justice to the case.
He called on the state to be calm as Ishaku and his party, the PDP continue to search for justice.
