What Bauchi Governor-Elect Said After Appearing In Court Monday

Bala Mohammed, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, has won the supplementary election in Bauchi State.

The Returning Officer Professor Kyari Mohammed made the announcement on Sunday, March 24, a day after the exercise took place in the northern state.

Naija News reports that the results announced by the Returning Officer show that the PDP candidate polled a total of 6,376 while the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, Muhammed Abubakar, who is the incumbent governor polled 5,117.

However, the Returning Officer stressed that he is in no position to make a return because the case involving the Tafawa Balewa LGA is still in court.
