PDP in marginal lead in Kano as INEC set to declare result soon

Abba Kabir Yusuf, governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano, is marginally leading ahead of his closest rival, the incumbent governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, in the ongoing results collation of the Saturday’s governorship elections in the state.

As at the early hours of Monday, the independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Returning Officer at the state collation centre declared the results of 43 out of the 44 LGAs in the state.

The results show that the PDP polled 951,531 votes as against the APC’s 935,451 votes.

Thus, PDP is leading with a margin of 16,080 votes in the state.

Meanwhile, INEC had suspended the collation process due to security reports at the Nasarawa collation centre where Kano Deputy Governor Nasiru Gawuna was arrested along with Murtala Garo and Sani, commissioner for local government and chairman of Nasarawa council respectively.

The trio was arrested while trying to destroy results sheets at the collation centre which they believed did not favor Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Gawuna and his accomplices are being detained at the Kano state police command headquarters in Bompai area, though the deputy governor is expected to be released because of his immunity.

DailyFocus reports that Gawuna was slapped several times by angry residents while Garo was stripped and humiliated before being arrested.

It was gathered that residents of Nasawara local government had voted massively for PDP during the election. It is believed that PDP is leading in the area by a very wide margin, which would eventually confirm Abba’s victory in the election.

The INEC headquarters in the state said it would rely on primary and secondary sources to generate the Nasarawa results in the presence of all party agents for transparency.

Below are the results as presented by Collation Officers at the state Collation Centre, INEC office in Kano:
