In less than 72 hours to the governorship and state assembly elections, a Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo disqualifies the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Taraba State, Sani Danladi.
ACEGIST gathered from ChannelTelevision that, Danladi was disqualified from participating in the election on Saturday over age falsification.
This was contained in the copy of the court’s verdict dated 6th March 2019 and made available to newsmen.
The state APC in a swift reaction described the court injunction as ‘comical’, and said legal redress is being sought to set aside the judgement.
The court in its ruling ordered that “the first defendant, Sani Abubakar Danladi is prohibited from parading himself as the candidate of the second defendant, APC in the governorship election for Taraba state slated for 9th March 2019 or any subsequent date to be slated.”
Meanwhile, APC in the state have vowed to field in candidate in the said election as they said the law permit them to substitute the name before the election.
