Taraba state logoMr. Daniel Tsokwa, younger brother to the late Taraba Speaker, Haruna Tsokwa, has been declared winner of the bye-election for Takum 1 Constituency in Taraba.

Declaring the results in the early hours of Sunday, the Returning Officer, Dr. Ibrahim Wayo, said Daniel of the Peoples Democratic Party got 36,070 votes to defeat his opponent, Musa Danjuma of All Progressives Congress, who scored 4,479 votes.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) observed that the election was monitored by no fewer than five resident electoral commissioners from neighbouring states and scores of senior officers from the Independent National Electoral Commission Headquarters.

There was heavy presence of security agents, including the army and the police, deployed across the six wards of the constituency to monitor the election.

Commenting on the results, the state’s APC Chairman, Alhaji Hassan Ardo, attributed his party’s loss to what he described as misinformation.

He said, “The National Secretariat of the APC was misinformed and this led to the substitution of the candidate that won the party primaries”. (NAN)
