The election petition tribunal sitting in Abuja over April Gubernatorial poll has sacked the incumbent Governor, Darius Ishaku of People Democratic Party and declared the All Progressives Party’ candidate, Hajia Aisha Alhassan winner.

The tribunal headed by Justice Musa Danladi Abubakar nullified Ishaku’s election on the ground that he was not validly elected at the PDP primaries.
Hajia Aisha Alhassan, who scored the second highest votes had since been declared the winner of the election.

According to Justice Abubakar, there was overwhelming evidence led by the petitioners (APC and Alhassan), represented by Mahmud Magaji (SAN) that the PDP did not hold a valid primaries as required by the Electoral Act.
