At last, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Bello Matawalle of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of Zamfara state governorship election.
This much was announced by the INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu during a press conference in Abuja on Saturday.
The INEC boss added that the PDP won all but one of the elective positions in the state. Kabiru Hassan of the National Rescue Movement (NRM) won the election in Maru south state constituency.
He said INEC arrived at this decision as a result of the Supreme Court ruling sacking all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general elections.
The apex court had ruled the party did not hold a valid primary election and subsequently voided its votes.
Matawalle scored 189,452 to emerge second in the governorship election
