Kebbi State All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Sen. Atiku Bagudu, was last night declared winner of the governorship election held Saturday in the state.

The State Collation Officer, Prof. Mohammed Lawal Ahmed, while declaring the result at Na’amo Hall, Waziri Umar Federal Polytechnic, venue of the Governorship Collation Centre in Birnin Kebbi, said Bagudu won with 19 out of the 21 local government areas with total of 477,376 votes. He said that retired Gen. Sarkin-Yaki Bello of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came second with two LGAs and a total of 293,443 votes.

The Director General, PDP Governorship Campaign Organisation, Ambassador Isah Aliyu Mohammed, while reacting to the outcome of the election said: “The election has come and gone and the party is studying the situation from our field officers, then we will make up our minds either to leave with the results or reject it.”

On his part, Director General of APC Governorship Campaign Organisation and former deputy governor of the state, Alh Suleiman Argungu, while responding to PDP’s comment said: “In every contest, certainly there must be a winner and a loser and this is very clear win, particularly with the recent introduction of the card reader. So, it a victory that you cannot contest even in the tribunal or any court of law because INEC has made every bite of the exercise very transparent.”

The APC deputy governor-elect, retired Colonel Samaila Yombe, who spoke on behalf of the governor-elect, said: “People want change and they voted for change and people should also expect positive change for the new government.”

APC equally swept neighbouring Yobe State, where the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last night declared incumbent governor Ibrahim Gaidam as winner of last Saturday’s election.

Gaidam scored 334,847 votes to defeat a former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Adamu Waziri of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who polled 179,700 votes.

The result was announced in Damaturu by the Governorship Collation Officer, Prof. Abubakar Njodi.
