The appeal filed by by the All Progressives Congress and its governorship candidate in the March 9, 2019 poll, Abubakar Danladi, was dismissed by the appellate court.

The Court of Appeal held on Monday that APC had no candidate in the March 9, 2019 governorship election in Taraba State on the grounds of the disqualification of its candidate, Abubakar Danladi, by the Jalingo division of the Federal High Court on March 6, 2019.
