The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bello Mattawalle, winner of the Zamfara State governorship election.
Chairman of the Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, made the announcement at a press briefing on Saturday in Abuja.
He said Certificates of Return would be issued to the governor-elect, his deputy, three senators and seven reps-elect in Abuja on Monday.
The declaration follows the Supreme Court’s judgment on Friday which nullified the victory of all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election held on March 9, 2019.
According to the court, the APC failed to conduct primaries in the state and consequently, all votes cast in the state were wasted votes.
