Ovoke Paul/ Bight News

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has during a Press Briefing today, Saturday 25th May 2019, held at Conference Hall, INEC Headquarters, declared Bello Mutawalle of the Peoples Democratic party as the governor-elect of Zamfara State.

The commission also declared Mahdi Aliyu Gusua of PDP as deputy governor elect of Zamfara state. Also, INEC declared all the candidates of the PDP for national and state assemblies winners, as NRM won a seat in the state House of Assembly, following the nullification of the APC candidates by the Supreme Court on Friday.

The chairman of the commission, Mahmoud Yakubu, made the announcement Saturday.

Mr Mutawalle came second in the March governorship election in the state, behind the candidate of the All Progressives Congress.

The Supreme Court on Friday nullified the APC’s victory, saying the party did not conduct valid primaries ahead of the guber polls.

The judgement also affected national and state assemblies elections. The Supreme Court said that candidates who came second behind the APC, in all positions, be declared winners.

Bight News had reported that, the electoral commission, INEC, had earlier said it would reach a decision on Monday on which candidate would benefit from the ruling.

However, it confirmed at a press conference Saturday afternoon that Mr Mutawalle had met the required score to be governor as ruled by the Supreme Court on Friday.

There had been suspicion there could be a rerun election.

INEC chairman, Mr Yakubu, said the successful candidates would receive their certificate of returns on Monday 27th and Friday 31st May 2019, respectively.

The following are members elect for national and state assemblies elections as declared by INEC during its press conference today:
