The  candidate of  the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Darius Ishaku has been re-elected as the governor of Taraba State.

The state returning officer, Professor Shehu Iya, of Modibo Adama University, Yola, declared the PDP candidate winner on Tuesday morning at the Independent National Electoral Commission (Inec) office in Jalingo.

According to Iya, the incumbent governor and PDP candidate polled a total of 520,433 votes, while Sani Danladi, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate garnered 362,735 votes to his name.

Hassan Mijinyawa, Ishaku’s chief press secretary,in a statement on Monday, said the governor had imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on the state capital, Jalingo, without stating the reasons for the curfew.

“The curfew will run from 6 am to 6 pm daily, however, some INEC officials, key Agents of political parties and observers involved in the collation of the election results are exempted.  Governor Ishiaku enjoined the people of the state to continue to be law-abiding as he urged security agencies to ensure strict compliance.” he said
