Governor Darius Ishaku on Sunday emerged as the Taraba state candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2019 governorship election.
The immediate past governor of Kogi state, Idris Wada, declared Ishaku winner at the end of voting by delegates.
Idris headed the Taraba PDP governorship primary Election Committee.
He explained that 2,000 delegates were accredited for the primary, while 1,928 votes were cast for Ishaku, who was the sole aspirant.
“I want to commend you all the delegates to this election for your peaceful and orderly conduct,” he said.
In his reaction, Ishaku thanked the PDP family in the state and pledged to ensure more development in the northeast state.
“It is not easy to be a sole aspirant for governorship in a party like PDP, but because of the confidence you have in me, it has happened,” he said.
