There is tension in Taraba State as Supreme Court to deliver the judgement on the Guber tussle of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the state.

This is coming a few days after the Supreme Court nullified the governorship primary election conducted by the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Newsflash Nigeria had earlier reported that the Supreme Court had nullified the nomination of Emmanuel Bwacha as the governorship candidate of the APC in Taraba state.

Delivering judgment on Wednesday, February 1, a five-member panel led by Kudirat Kekere-Ekun affirmed the verdict of the Federal High Court which held that the APC did not conduct any valid governorship primary in the state.

It means that APC does not have a governorship candidate in the state and would not be participating in the governorship election is billed for 11 March.

Meanwhile, there is tension among the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, awaiting Supreme Court judgement on the party’s guber candidate.

One of the PDP governorship aspirants, Professor Jerome Nyameh had approached the apex court after the Appeal Court voided his suit against the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Kefas Agbu, on the grounds that he (Agbu) did not purchase the expression of interest and nomination forms.

He argued through his counsel, Pius D. Pius that the candidate was the party’s State chairman, whom he said presided over the screening of some aspirants jostling for various elective positions on the platform of the party.

At the time of filing this report, palpable tension has enveloped the camps of both Agbu and Nyameh.

Some of their supporters said they would accept the outcome of the judgement in good faith.
