Just In: Taraba Election Has Been Declared ‘Inconclusive By INEC

Nigerians who have been waiting for the news of the announcement of the country’s first elected female Governor, may have to wait a while longer.

Aisha Al-Hassan is being cheered on to victory by several fans across the country, but this Vanguard report below just shows she’s no where near being returned  as Governor by the electoral umpire.

The Taraba state returning officer for governorship election Prof. Muhamdu Kyari has declared the governorship election in Taraba State as inconclusive.

The returning officer made the declaration in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital after collecting the 
result from the sixteen local government areas of Taraba state.

He said the reason for the declaration was because the number of canceled votes was above the gap between APC who came second in the election to PDP who came first.

Election in Donga local government area of the state was canceled by the returning officer and some other few polling units across the state. The total number scored by PDP in Donga was 37,069 while APC came second with 10,087

Elections were also canceled in Six poling units of Takum, five in Karim others in Yoro and Ussah local governments areas.

Supplementary elections will be held within 30 days
