The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has formally declared the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Zamfara, Bello Matawalle, winner of the state’s governorship election.
INEC Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu who announced this at a press conference in Abuja today said the PDP won in all elective positions in the state.
Yakubu said the announcement followed the Supreme Court judgment yesterday that sacked all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general election.
It would be recalled that the Supreme Court had ruled that the APC did not hold a valid primary election in Zamfara and subsequently voided its votes.
The PDP Governorship candidate Matawalle polled 189,452 to emerge second in the governorship election. (NAN)
