APC rejects Sokoto governorship election result


The All Progressive Congress in Sokoto state has rejected the results of the governorship election declared by the returning officer, Professor Fatima Batulu Mukhtar in Sokoto on Sunday.

Similarly, the Chairman, APC Governorship Campaign Council, Alhaji Maigari Dingyadi, has denied that Senator Aliyu Wamakko and APC governorship candidate, Alhaji Ahmed Aliyu have called Governor Aminu Tambuwal to congratulate him on his victory.

Alhaji Dingyadi described such news circulated on social media as malicious and false.

The state Publicity Secretary of the party, Sambo Bello Danchadi, said, “The so-called winning margins of 342 votes is far less in number than the registered voters in polling units where elections were not held, which is a contravention of the electoral law.


“We also laid a complaint that elections were conducted twice in some polling units and the figures of the two elections were added up as one election.

“We further drew the attention of INEC to a number of polling units that were cancelled as a result of violent attacks by party thugs, while others were arbitrarily cancelled to please certain political party interest”
