Tribunal Sacks Speaker Abel Diah: Nullifies Election by uniknet: 8:03pm On Oct 28, 2015
The Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Jalingo on Wednesday nullified the election of the Speaker of the Taraba state House of Assembly, Abel Diah, of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The tribunal ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to set aside a certificate of Return earlier issued to the speaker.
The Independent National Electoral Commission INEC in Taraba state had earlier declared Mr. Diah, the winner of the April eleven elections for Mbamga Constituency in the state House of Assembly.

Following the pronouncement, the All Progressives Congress Candidate in the constituency, Emmanuel Bongo, went to the elections tribunal challenging the victory of the Speaker.

The petitioner argued that elections conducted in nine polling units in Mbamga constituency were marred by enormous irregularities.
Delivering its judgment, the National and Houses of Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal ruled that elections in eight out of the nine polling units, challenged by the petitioner, were conducted against the provision of the 2010 Electoral Act.

According to the tribunal, polls conducted in the eight polling units were null and void.
The tribunal declared the elections inconclusive and ordered INEC to conduct fresh polls within 90 days beginning from Wednesday in the eight affected polling units.

The judges ordered the electoral umpire to set aside the certificate of return earlier issued to the Speaker.
With the judgment, the APC candidate, Emmanuel Bongo, leads with 1,440 votes.
Speaking to Journalist after the ruling, the APC Chairman in the state, Hassan Ardo, thanked the tribunal saying the judgment was based on facts.

On the other hand, the counsel to the speaker declined comment

PDP would never have thought that APC would win the Federal power. So they used everything they had then to rig the hell out of the election. Now the thing dey backfire like mad, and those that doesn't know how the court works are saying "my mandate cannot be stolen from me". Ayam very sorry! You stole it, and it will be taken back from you.

This is simply Judicial Terrorism perpetrated by Buhari-led FG against the people of Nigeria and PDP. Their main intent is to fraudulently use the court to subvert the peoples' will.

That injustice is being corrected?Nigerians are a unique lot,so afraid and ever ready to allow wrong things be done in order to be politically correct.
If the tribunals wud upturn all results that wud enthrone a single party in the country or a state,so let it be.We must learn to win elections free and fair in this country.

It's very surprising that many of the elections conducted by Jega were not found credible after careful examination. No wonder why some ppl are getting international call-ups including appointment into the board of trustees and election observance in Tanzania. Meanwhile, the guy's card reader initiative continues to sell like "APC propaganda" in Nigeria

Don't mind them. The truth is, APC would have won the Gubernatorial election in Taraba if not that PDP rigged it. if you recall correctly, she was widely reported to be leading, then all of a sudden, everything changed.
