The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced on Monday that Senator Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is now in power, had won the governorship race for Kaduna State in 2023.
Sani defeated Ashiru of the PDP, who received 719,196 votes, with a total vote total of 730,002. Jonathan Asake of the Labour Party (LP) finished in a distant third place with 58,283 votes, while Suleiman Hunkuyi of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) received 21,405 votes.
Yet in a statement sent by his campaign organization’s deputy director of media and publicity, Rueben Buhari, the PDP candidate encouraged all of his fans and party members who want real leadership in the state to be calm and peaceful regardless of the election’s conclusion.
Ashiru praised the exceptional dedication, sacrifice, and commitment of those who shared the goal that her party and she stood for.
“Despite difficulties such as a lack of fuel and money, instability, and threat, people still braved the elements to cast their votes. Even while there were multiple delays in the results announcement, they patiently and peacefully waited.
I’m still appreciative of everyone’s dedication and support, especially for the wisdom and direction they’ve given me.
The PDP candidate said that he and his party are scrutinizing every aspect of the election, including the declared results, which completely didn’t reflect the preferences of the majority of Kaduna voters. He claims that this will serve as the foundation for any future actions that he and his party may take.
In addition, he praised party members and supporters who gave up their time and money to support him during the state’s electoral procedures, saying that the people’s devotion, commitment, and faith in him, including his political rivals, had truly humbled him.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that it would file a lawsuit after rejecting the results of the Katsina State governor election held on Saturday.
At a news conference on Monday in Katsina, Mustapha Inuwa, the director general of the Atiku/Lado Campaign Council, announced the party’s choice.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Dikko Radda, won the governorship race with 859,892 votes, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Yakubu Lado-Danmarke, the PDP candidate, lost to him with 486,620 votes.
Mr. Inuwa claims that the outcome did not accurately reflect the voters’ choice on Saturday.
