The outcome of the just concluded run-off governorship election in Taraba State, north east Nigeria, has been described as the voice of the people which should be a rallying point for all citizens in the state.
A cross section of the people agreed that there might be flaws during the elections, but there are avenues to address such grievances rather than taking to the streets to protest.
After the election on April 11 was declared inconclusive, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ordered for a run-off in some polling units across 10 local government areas of the state.
Following the announcement of results which returned Darius Ishaku of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Senator Aisha Alhassan, rejected the results and expressed her desire to challenge it at the election tribunal.
However, the people of the state have expressed their expectations for the incoming government, with emphases on peace building and forgiveness for the development of the state.
