Supplementary Polls: APC’s Ganduje Leads In Kano State

Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State was leading his main challenger, Abba Yusuf of the Peoples Democratic Party, in Saturday’s supplementary governorship election in the state.

The results of eight out of the 28 local government areas where the election took place showed that Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress had polled 6,473 votes while his opponent scored 970 votes as of 10pm.

In the March 9 poll declared inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission, the APC polled 987, 819 votes while the PDP had 1,014, 474 votes.

While the collation of votes was ongoing, a representative of the PDP raised an objection, describing the poll process as a disservice to democracy.

He asked if there were separate rules for different parties because the Returning Officer cancelled some votes based on the violence that marred voting in the areas where the results came from.

Details of results are as follows: Bichi LGA – APC: 1,969, PDP: 39; Bebeji LGA -APC: 205, PDP: 0; Rogo LGA – APC: 1,033, PDP: 162; Karaye LGA – APC: 1,317, PDP: 27; Rimin Gado LGA – APC: 1,463, PDP: 12; LGA: Warawa- APC: 501, PDP: 152; Rano LGA – APC: 2,337, PDP: 37;
