A coalition of women groups under the aegis of Women of Grace and Agape Sisters, in collaboration with FCT Women Empowerment Initiative, have hailed the Taraba Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which nullified the election of Governor Darius Ishaku and declared Senator Aisha Jummai Alhassan of the APC as winner of the April 11 governorship election.
Addressing a press conference yesterday in Abuja, the spokesperson of the coalition, Mrs. Rachel Okpe, described the judgment as “democracy in progress”, stressing that Taraba State is on the road to producing Nigeria’s first democratically elected female governor.
She equally described the PDP as a “divided kingdom” that cannot stand, noting that the national and state PDP are singing different songs on the tribunal judgment.
She said: “You can see confusion and conflicting statements from the camp of the PDP. While Mr. Olisa Metuh is in Abuja ranting over the judgment, his colleague in Taraba State, Mr. Napoleon Adamu is saying the opposite. For us as a coalition, we are solidly behind one of our own, Aisha Jummai Alhassan. We celebrate the judgment, we celebrate her and we equally celebrate the good people of Taraba State who have remained resolute in spite of political provocations by the PDP.”
