PDP beats APC, wins Zamfara supplementary election

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has won Zamfara state supplementary election where Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Ibrahim Tudu as winner of the Bakura State constituency election.

According to INEC Returning Officer for the election, Yahaya Tanko of Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto, Tudu polled 23,874 votes against the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mr Dan-Kande Bello, who polled 16,546 votes.

The state PDP chairperson, Tukur Dan-Fulani, who spoke to journalists shortly after the announcement, enjoined the winner to justify his victory by being a good ambassador of the party.

The APC had on Tuesday announced that it was boycotting the election.
Mr Ibrahim Birnin-Magaji, the state publicity secretary of the party, said at a briefing that the party was pulling out because it had lost confidence in INEC and security agencies in the state.
