Supporters of the All Progressives Congress in Taraba State on Saturday said the court had restored their joy and glory of producing the first democratically-elected female governor.
The APC supporters told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja, shortly after the judgment of the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal for Taraba which declared Mrs. Aisha Alhassan of APC as governor.
The tribunal, in its judgment delivered at the Court of Appeal premises in Abuja, nullified the election of Darius Ishaku of the PDP on the grounds that he was not validly nominated at the PDP primaries to contest the governorship election.
One of the supporters, Amina Dauda, said the victory was well-deserved “and it shows that the judiciary is the last hope for aggrieved people.
“I am happy that a woman is now the governor of Taraba.
“It is a good encouragement for us and we have made history in Nigeria.”
Another supporter, Mr. Suleiman Ibrahim, said “the judgment is a confirmation that Taraba is for APC.”
