Gov Darius challenges removal at Appeal Court Abuja

By; MAGAJI ISA HUNKUYI, Jalingo. 

Governor Darius Ishaku  of Taraba state has filed an appeal at federal court of appeal in Abuja challenging the  judgement of the Governorship election petition tribunal that sacked him.

The Special Assistant on media affairs to the Governor, Mr Slyvanus  Giwa said Governor Darius  went to the appellate court to seek redress over the judgement of the tribunal which was a kangaroo judgement.

He said the judges at the appellate court were people that have the fear of God at heart and therefore Governor Darius will be victorious.

“The judgement of the tribunal was a miscarriage of the law and it was unacceptable to us” Mr Slyvanus said.

He stated that Governor Darius has the mandate of the people and he has the confidence of winning his case at the appeal court.

“We are quite sure that the appellate court is going to reverse the judgement of the tribunal because it was full of mistakes and contradictions” Mr. Giwa further stressed.

The APC Chairman in the state  Alhaji Hassan Ardo  while commenting on the appeal file by Governor Darius said no body was  afraid of such move.

He said in a telephone interview with New Nigerian that the team of lawyers are waiting for Darius and his lawyers in the court.

“You can’t change the electoral law overnight neither can anybody change the law of the land and we are sure that the appeal court will uphold the tribunal judgement” APC chairman said.
