    INEC Has Declared Kano Governorship Election Inconclusive Politics
    The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has also declared Kano governorship election which was held on Saturday inconclusive.

    The state’s Returning Officer, Prof. Bello Shehu who made the announcement on Monday, said the election is inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes is higher than the difference in votes scored between the two leading candidates: Abba Yusuf of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and incumbent governor Abdullahi Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

    The INEC Returning officer who declared the Kano governorship inconclusive, added that while the PDP candidate polled 1,014,474 votes, Mr Ganduje of the APC scored 987,819 votes leaving a difference of 26,655 votes. The total number of votes cancelled across 22 local government areas including Gama ward of Nasarawa local government is 141,694 votes. He backed his announcement by citing provisions of the law, which stated that he had to declare the election inconclusive because the number of cancelled votes is much higher than the difference between the two major candidates.

    With the announcement, Kano joins Benue, Plateau, Adamawa, Bauchi and Sokoto states on the growing list of states whose governorship election was declared inconclusive.
