INEC Declares Kano Governorship Election Inconclusive

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the governorship election in Kano State, inconclusive.

Professor Belo Shehu the INEC Returning officer for the state, declared the election inconclusive, saying that the margin of lead between the two leading parties (PDP and the APC) was not enough to declare a winner.

Prof. Shehu in announcing the number of votes polled said that the PDP’s candidate, Mr. Abba Yusuf polled 1,014,474 votes while Abdullahi Ganduje of the APC polled 987,819 votes.

The returning officer noted that the difference of 26,655 votes recorded was not enough to hand Abba Yusuf the victory.

He stressed that the cancellation recorded during the exercise which is a total of 128,572, was higher than the margin of lead between the top contenders, hence the reason for arriving at an inconclusive verdict.
