The election petition tribunal in Jalingo, Taraba State, on Thursday nullified the senatorial election which returned former Acting Governor Abubakar Sani Danladi of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The tribunal declared the election as “inconclusive” and ordered fresh poll in 48 polling units spread across 13 wards in three local government councils in the district.

Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Samson Angor, ruled that the election was conducted in violation of the Electoral Act 2010 which said elections must begin with registration and accreditation of voters before voting.

Angor said there were irregularities in the 48 polling units which disfranchised more than 36,000 eligible voters from participating in the election.
