Abuja -? A renowned academic has suggested the historic swearing-in ceremony
of Taraba State governor-elect, Aisha Jummai Al-Hassan, be held in Abuja.
Prof Isa Odidi, a close acquaintance of Al-Hassan in her
school days at Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, said the suggestion was based
on the significance of the event.
She is set to become the country's first female governor.
Odidi envisaged a large crowd at the ceremony.
"Specifically, because Governor Aisha
Jummai-Alhassan has gained love from Nigerians and the world, it will be wise
to reciprocate same to her followers in a more befitting setting," he said
on his recommendation to hold the ceremony in Abuja.

He said this was bearing in mind adequate security and
logistics, moreover, to increase the governor elect's momentum and
Jummai-Alhassan was initially defeated in the election
re-run held in April.
However, in November, a tribunal removed Taraba Governor,
Darius Ishaku, and declared Jummai-Alhassan of the All Progressives Congress
winner of the original poll.
The details of the swearing-in ceremony are
still not confirmed.
