The Supreme Court today upheld the victory of Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku in the March 9th 2019 governorship election in Taraba State.

The lead Judgement was read by Justice Ejembi Eko who held that the All Progressive Congress (APC) Taraba State has no locus standi first of all because they went into the 2019 General Elections without a candidate among other electoral requirements.

Justice Eko held that a candidate who did not participate in an election can not be allocated with votes and can not also be declared a winner.

He further declared that all votes cast for APC during the 2019 elections was void, invalid and wasted votes.

The court finally declared Governor Darius Dickson Ishaku as the winner of the March 9th 2019 Governorship elections with the highest number of lawful votes in compliance with the provisions of the electoral act.
