Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately declare our candidate, Abba
K. Yusuf, as the winner of the Kano Governorship election, having scored
the highest number of lawful votes and secured the statutory 25% in
two-third of the state.
Kola Ologbondiya, Spokesman of the PDP said “The party insists that no
valid polling held at the March 23 Kano Supplementary elections and
therefore no figures can be fabricated from the exercise to displace Abba
Yusuf’s leading margin of over 26, 000
“INEC is already aware that its supplementary election in Kano was
completely disrupted by thugs contracted by the All Progressives
Congress (APC), who invaded polling units and chased away voters. The
commission therefore cannot accept fabricated figures being bandied by
the APC as results from the scuttled rerun
“The people of Kano state have since made up their minds to have Abba
Yusuf as their governor and any attempt by anybody to subvert their will
as already expressed in the March 9 substantive poll will surely attract
the legitimate anger of the masses.
“We therefore call on INEC to immediately do the needful by respecting
the will of the people as freely expressed on March 9 and announce Abba
Yusuf, the flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party, as the winner of
the election, having fulfilled the demands of Section 179 (2) of the
1999 Constitution (as amended).
