The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mrs Aisha Alhassan has been declared winner of the April 11 election in Taraba State. She was declared winner after Aisha Alhassan by the tribunal sitting in Abuja on Saturday.

Mrs Alhassan had challenged the victory of Governor Ishaku in the Taraba State governorship election.

The tribunal Chairman, Justice Musa Abubakar, had on October 7 reserved judgment indefinitely after hearing the final submissions of the counsels.

In his final address, the Lead counsel to the petitioners, Mr Mahmoud Magaji (SAN), asked the tribunal to return Mrs Alhassan as the duly elected governor of Taraba State.

The Counsel to the governor, Mr Kanu Agabi (SAN) prayed the court to dismiss the petition, describing it as lacking in merit.

The courtroom is filled with lawyers and supporters of the two parties.
