The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Zamfara, Bello Matawalle winner of the state’s governorship election.
INEC Chairman Professor Mahmood Yakubu made the announcement on Saturday during a press conference in Abuja on Saturday, saying the opposition party won in all elective positions in the state.
He said the declaration followed the Supreme Court decision on Friday that sacked all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general election.
It would be recalled that the Supreme Court had ruled the party did not hold a valid primary election and subsequently voided its votes.
The PDP Governorship candidate Matawalle had emerged second in the governorship election.
