Biography of Danasabe Charles Hosea


Danasabe Charles Hosea was born in 1962. He is an indigene of Taraba State. He is a member of the Federal House of Representative representing Gashaka/Kurmi/Sardauna Federal Constituency.

In the 2015 elections, he contested for the Federal House of Representative under the Platform of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and Won.
However, the National and State Assembly Elec­tion Petition Tri­bunal sitting in Jalingo in October 2015,nullified the election of Danasabe Charles Hosea represent­ing Kurmi/Gashaka/ Sarduana Federal con­stituency in the National Assembly on the platform of the PDP.
Candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC in the March, 2015 election, Ibrahim El-Sudi had dragged Danasabe of the People’s Demo­cratic Party, PDP to the tribunal challenging his victory at the poll on the ground that the election was conducted in non-compliance with the elec­toral act.
Tribunal chairman, Justice Samson Angor who read the judgment ordered fresh election in 19 polling units in the con­stituency on the grounds of non-compliance with the electoral act.
The tribunal held that the respondents failed to prove the case of compli­ance with the provisions of the electoral act in the conduct of elections in 19 polling units in the con­stituency beyond reason­able doubt.
Citing evidence before the tribunal, Justice Sam­son Angor held that elec­tion in 19 polling units in Kurmi and Sardauna local government areas in the constituency were conducted in non compli­ance with the provisions of the electoral act.
He also held that the marginal difference in votes between the winner and the runner up was less than the number of registered voters in the 19 polling units where elections were conducted without compliance with the electoral act.
The tribunal judge then declared the elec­tion inconclusive and ordered the setting aside of the certificate of re­turn issued to the 3rd respondent, Danasabe Charles Hosea, by the 1st respondent, Independent National Electoral Com­mission, INEC.

Tribunal judge also ordered INEC to conduct a fresh election in the 19 polling units within 90 days.
