Abuja - Thousands of angry Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members on Wednesday besieged the party’s national secretariat in Abuja over the Taraba State Governorship Election Tribunal ruling, which nullified the election of Governor Darius Ishaku, reports Daily Trust
The protesters who were carrying different placards with different inscriptions such as Darius won the PDP primary election, said the ruling lacked substance of law and was a ploy by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to raise doubt in the judiciary as the third arm of government.

Operating under the aegis of National Youth Vanguard of the PDP, the protesters said the ruling was capable of destabilizing Taraba State.
In a statement jointly signed by the national secretary and national publicity secretary of the group, Ibrahim Bala Aboki and Crescent Ogbu, the protesters urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call APC leaders to order, especially in their efforts to capture Taraba State by all means.
It would be recalled that the Taraba Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, declared the candidate of the APC in the election Aisha Alhassan as winner, stating that there was no PDP primary that produced Ishaku as its governorship candidate for the election.
