A Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital, has disqualified Alhaji Sani Abubakar Danladi, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the state.
The ruling was issued on Wednesday.
The court based its decision on allegations of false declaration of age by Danladi in the documents provided to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Danladi had represented Taraba North senatorial district in the National Assembly on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He, however, dumped PDP for APC in December 2017.
