The supporters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Taraba declared their party made history by producing the first democratically elected female governor in Nigeria.
The activists who gathered to support Senator Aisha Alhassan in Abuja on Saturday, November 7, said the judgment restored the glory of the ruling party.
Amina Dauda, one of the supporters, told a corresponded of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the victory was well-deserved.
“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,” the activist said.
Suleiman Ibrahim, another supporter of Mama Taraba, said:
“The judgment is a confirmation that Taraba is for APC… It is a reflection of the wish of Taraba people.”
The APC supporters were seen jubilating and shouting “APC!”, “Sai Baba!”. Some other groups were also seen dancing, as music was playing outside the court premises upon the announcement of the verdict.
The elections petitions tribunal has annulled the result of the April 11 governorship election on Saturday, November 7, on the grounds that PDP’s candidate Darius Ishaku was not validly nominated at the party’s primaries to contest the governorship election.
The embattled governor-elect, Ishaku, has disagreed with its decision, promised to appeal. The main opposition force of Nigeria, the Peoples Democratic Party, and the controversial Governor Fayose of Ekiti state did not accept the outcome of the tribunal too.
