Niger Assembly: APC kicks as INEC declares PDP candidate winner

The APC in Niger State has rejected INEC’s decision to halt the rerun for the state House Assembly election for Agaie constituency in the state.

The party said INEC erred in declaring the PDP candidate winner of the election it earlier said was inconclusive.

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in the state, Prof. Sam Egwu, yesterday, issued a press statement declaring the PDP candidate, Yahaya Abdullahi, as winner of the election.

INEC said its decision was sequel to the earlier declaration of the PDP candidate winner of the election by the returning officer, Prof. Musa Kolo.

The REC, in a statement he personally signed, said the rerun in two units had been dropped after due consultations with stakeholders.

However, in a swift reaction, APC chairman, Eng. Mohammed Jibril Imam, said the commission’s decision declaring the PDP candidate winner was unacceptable.

Imam wondered why the commission should take such critical decision when the votes difference in the results under contention were just 106, while the two units the rerun was billed to take place boast of 1,437  votes.
