Senate president Bukola Saraki of the Peoples Democratic Party has been dealt a final blow in Kwara State as his party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has once again lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC), this time in the governorship election held on Saturday.
According to results on Sunday, Mr. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, of the APC scored 331,546 votes to emerge as the winner of the long awaited election while his runner-up, Mr. Abdulrazaq Atunwa of the PDP polled 114,754 votes to emerge as the runner-up in the election.
Recall that Saraki had earlier lost his bid to return to the senate alongside other senatorial candidates of the PDP, two weeks ago, with the PDP also losing in the presidential election in the state.
Both Saraki and Atunwa have congratulated Abdulrazaq on his victory.
