Inconclusive poll: Tambuwal rejects INEC’s decision, heads to Court

By - - [Politics ]

Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto State has rejected the declaration of Sokoto Governorship polls as inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), urging it to declare him the winner of the election in the state.

The election was declared inconclusive by INEC as the number of votes cancelled was much higher than the winning margin.

Tambuwal, who contested on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was leading by 3,413, having scored 489,558 votes while Ahmed Aliyu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) got 486,145 votes.

But the number of votes canceled from across 136 polling units in 22 local government areas was 75,403.


Addressing a press conference, Tambuwal said there was nothing like inconclusive election in the constitution.

“It is not founded in the constitution and there is a need for it to be tested in the court of law,” he said.

Tambuwal noted the need for the electoral body to reconsider its decision.

According to him, the constitution was explicit about the winner of the election, quoting section 179 (2) of the constitution.

“We will not allow anybody to subvert the mandate of our people. Every member of INEC has his name to protect,” he said.
