The Supreme Court on Monday gave reasons why it upheld the election of Mr Darius Ishaku as the duly elected governor of Taraba State.

Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour who dismissed the petition of Mrs Aishat Alhassan of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on February 11, 2016 said she lacked the locus standi to complain about the primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that produced Mr Ishaku as its governorship candidate since she did not participate in the said primaries.

The apex court further holds that all the issues raised by Mrs Alhassan in her petition have been settled by the court as no person is allowed by law to call for the cancellation of an election he/she did not participate in.
