Declaring the winner, the INEC Returning Officer, Professor Ahmad Tijjani Fagam said that the APC candidate emerged the winner having scored the highest number of votes.

“Yusuf Nuhu of the APC having satisfied all the requirements and scoring the highest number of votes is returned as the winner of the election,” he said.

The election was however marred by widespread voter apathy which led to low number of voters who participated in the by-election despite their presence at the polling booths.

Results in some polling units were also cancelled due to over voting after failure of card readers because the voters voted without proper accreditation.
