INEC Declares Governorship Election Inconclusive (See States)



INEC Chairman Dragged To Court Over Asset Declaration

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the governorship election in some states inconclusive.

Naija News understands that INEC declared the elections in Plateau and Adamawa States as inconclusive due to some reasons that came up in the cause of the election.

The declaration was made by the returning officers of both states in separate announcements to newsmen on Monday.

In Jos, the Plateau State capital, Professor Richard Kimbir announced that the margin of a lead of 44,929 between the APC and the PDP candidates is less than 49,377 cancelled votes.

According to the returning officer, this constrains him to return a winner but rather declare the election inconclusive and bye-elections should hold in the affected areas.

Simon Lalong of APC was said to have pulled a total of 583,255 votes while Jerry Useni of PDP scored 538,326.

Professor Fatima Muktar had given the same reason for her decision and asked those troubled to channel their grievances to the electoral body.

However, the elections in these states are yet to be announced s the elections in the state are still inconclusive.
