“Ahmadu Fintiri of the PDP, having satisfied the requirements of the law and scored the highest number of votes in the election is hereby declared the winner and returned elected,” he said.

The Voice Media Trust (VMT NEWS) reports that INEC had fixed April 15 for supplementary governorship poll following the declaration of the March 18 election inconclusive in the state.

However, controversy trailed the purported declaration of the APC’s Binani as the winner of the supplementary poll by the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner.

The commission, thereafter, declared the pronouncement null and void.
