Senate President Bukola Saraki has sworn in Shuaibu Isa Lau as the Senator representing Taraba North, following Supreme Court’s dismissal of Sani Danladi.

The apex court had on Friday 23 June, 2017, ordered Senator Sani Danladi (Taraba North) to vacate his seat immediately and refund all salaries and allowances he received within 90 days.

This was contained in the judgment of the court on the appeal filed by Shuaibu Lau challenging the decision of the court of appeal that had upturned his victory during the primary that he was wrongfully substituted.

The court, therefore, directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a Certificate of Return to Lau and withdraw the Certificate earlier issued the former Deputy Governor of Taraba state.
