The senatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ibrahim Tudu, in Bakura constituency supplementary election has been declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the winner of the election.
The Returning Officer of the commission, Prof. Yahaya Tanko, noted that Tudu polled 23,874 votes to win the election.
Naija News had earlier reported that the All Progressives Congress announced its plan to boycott the electoral process.
The party in a statement released through its state Publicity Secretary, Ibrahim Birnin-Magaji claimed that APC is pulling out because it had lost confidence on INEC and security agencies in the state.
Tanko said, “the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mr Dan-Kande Bello, polled 16,546 votes, while Mr Ibrahim Tudu of the PDP scored 23,874 votes and he has been declared elected.”
The Chairman of PDP in the state, Tukur Dan-Fulani, while speaking to journalists after the victory was announced urged the winner to justify his victory by being a good ambassador of the party.
