TARABA: PDP leads after results from 12 of 16 local govts



The incumbent governor of Taraba State and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Darius Ishaku, is currently enjoying a clear lead in the governorship election held on Saturday in the state.

With 12 local governments already declared from the 16 that make up Taraba State, the PDP candidate has majority votes in nine local governments while the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, Sani Danladi, has emerged tops in the three other LGAs.

Predictably, the biggest vote for the PDP candidate is coming from Takum LGA where the present governor hails from.

The PDP in Takum LGA recorded 50,562 votes compared to APC's 14,014.
