The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has won all the 23 chairmanship and all councillorship seats at Saturday’s Sokoto State local government poll.
Alh. Usman Abubakar, Chairman of the state independent electoral commission, SIEC, disclosed this while announcing the results of the election on Sunday at the commission’s head office in Sokoto.
Alh. Abubakar said candidates of the PDP emerged winners of the 23 chairmanship and councillorship positions in the election.
The total votes scored by the candidates of PDP across the 23 local government is 774,424 as announced by the commission.
Alh. Abubakar said the election was generally peaceful in the ….. polling units across the 23 Local Government Areas of the state.
A total number of 10 political parties took part in the election on Saturday, while main opposition party in the state, All Progressive Congress, APC, opted out of the election, due to what they described as partiality of the state electoral umpire.
