How el-Rufai (APC) won Kaduna | Okowa (PDP) sweeps Delta

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, as winner of Saturday’s election. He polled 1,045,427 votes to defeat Isha Ashiru of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who garnered 814,168 votes. He reportedly won in 15 of the 23 local government areas, while Ashiru won in eight of the LGAs.

Meanwhile, the PDP has rejected the results of the election, alleging conspiracy.

Speaking at the Kaduna collation centre, Jerry Ishaya, the party’s agent, said “We have formally written the INEC that card readers were not used in those local government areas mentioned. Our agents told us how security agents overpowered them in some areas,” he said.

“The results were manipulated in collaboration with the INEC, security agents.”
