The Executive Secretary of the state’s Independent Electoral Commission (KASIEC), Lawal Faskari, who announced the results of the election early on Tuesday, said the APC won in 31 local councils so far declared by the commission while the results of Daura and Funtua LGAs were pending.

He added that the election in Dutsin-ma LGA was stopped over alleged irregularities.

Faskari said: “The commission has so far received complete results from 31 Local Government Areas, 328 Wards, awaiting that of Funtua and Daura while election in Dutsinma LGA has been cancelled over widespread irregularities.
