At a time she is waiting in the wings to be named into a ministry as its supervising minister, Taraba State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal has declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Hajia Aisha Jumai Alhassan, as the lawful winner of the state governorship election held on April 11.
In its judgement delivered on Saturday, the tribunal sacked Darius Ishaku of the Peoples Democratic Party as governor.
The tribunal said Alhassan is the lawfully elected candidate of the election.
Hajia Alhassan was recently confirmed by the Senate as Minister. Speaking during her screening before the Senate, Alhassan said her nomination by President Muhammadu Buhari is without prejudice to the battle to claim her mandate at the election tribunal.
