PDP flags used to illustrate the story.

The People’s Democratic Party, PDP, candidates have been declared winners of 13 local government chairmanship seats so far declared by the Taraba State Independent Electoral Commission.

The PDP had also won all the local government chairmanship and councillorship seats in neighbouring Gombe State. The party also won the two parliamentary seats in the rerun election in Rivers State.

Results from Sardauna and Karim Lamido Local Governments are still being waited, while the exercise was suspended in Ibi Local Government after violence broke out during the exercise.

    Premium Times Editor,

    We must all join hands together to usher in the
    NEW PDP federal GOVERNMENT in 2019 if we are not cursed. We know this truth as
    self-evident that the All Progressives Congress [APC] is a criminal organization – full of Alhajis –
    signifying nothing……but ignorance.

    • Shorty & Sharpy

      I PREDICT THAT ACTING PRESIDENT YEMI OSINBAJO WILL NOT VOTE FOR APC IN 2019

      BASED ON WHAT OSINBAJO NOW KNOWS OF HOW ISLAMISTS UNDER-DEVELOP NIGERIA.

  • Say the truth

    The more reason PDP will have to put their house in order. We need alternatives and it’s good for our democracy.
