The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Idris Nasiru, of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as winner of Kebbi State governorship election.

Nasiru scored 409,225 votes to defeat his closest challenger, Bande Aminu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who got 360,940 votes.

Saidu Yusuf, the returning officer, declared the APC candidate as the winner, on Sunday.

In March, INEC declared the March 18 Kebbi gubernatorial election inconclusive owing to “massive vote cancellation and overvoting” in 20 of the 21 LGAs in the state.

Owing to the incident, the electoral commission fixed April 15 for a supplementary election.
