1 min read


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Sokoto State has rejected the result of the rerun election conducted on Saturday in Tambuwal West Constituency, describing it as daylight robbery.

A statement released by the party’s state spokesman, Hassan Sahabi Sanyinnawal, on Sunday, congratulated the winners of the other two contested seats.

INEC had declared Dahiru Bashir Ahmed, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner of the Tambuwal West Constituency with a total number of 19,315 votes.

He defeated PDP’s Hantsi Sule Romo, polling a total number of 19,021 votes.

On the Tambuwal West result, it alleged that it was political daylight robbery by some bigwigs of the Sokoto State Government, who snatched the ballot box of one of the polling units already won by the PDP and changed the results in favour of APC candidate.

The party felicitated with the members-elect for Yabo/Shagari Federal Constituency, Umar Yusuf Yabo, and Bodinga North State Constituency, in the State Assembly, Abubakar Magaji, for winning their respective rerun elections.

The statement added, “The PDP also commends its supporters across the constituencies as well as its supporters in all parts of Sokoto State for their efforts and dedication despite intimidation by agents of the Sokoto State Government, who were bent on rigging the process in favour of APC candidates.”
