APC wins 31 of 34 seats in Katsina LG poll
Katsina State Independent Electoral Commission (KTSIEC) has declared the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as winner in 31 out of the 34 local government areas of the state.
The LG election was held on Saturday.
This was announced by Lawal Faskari, secretary of the commission in the early hours of Tuesday in Katsina.
Faskari said the election was not completed in Daura and Funtua local government areas.
He also said the election was cancelled in Dutsin-Ma LGA owing to some challenges, while the exercise was peaceful in all other areas.
“The exercise was peaceful, and no fewer than 12 registered political parties participated, except in Dutsin-Ma, where challenges forced the commission to use section 60 of the Katsina state local government elections law, 2002 to stop the process,” Faskari said.
“The commission has so far received complete results from 31 local government areas, 328 wards, awaiting that of Funtua and Daura, while elections in Dutsin-Ma has been cancelled.
“The commission, therefore, wishes to announce that APC has won all the 31 chairmanship and 328 councillorship seats so far collated.”
He congratulated the winners of the election and appreciated the political parties’ “high level of maturity and sportsmanship exhibited during and after the exercise”.
He also thanked the electorate, stakeholders for their support and cooperation.
