Supreme Court: INEC Declares PDP’s Bello Matawelle Zamfara Gov-Elect

Zamfara Gov. Elect, Bello Matawelle

(News Investigators)/The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared Bello Matawalle of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of Zamfara state governorship election.

Mr. Matawalle had polled 189,452 to emerge second in the last governorship election.

INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, announced this during a press conference in Abuja on Saturday.

He also said the party won all but one of the elective positions in the state. Kabiru Hassan of the National Rescue Movement (NRM) won the election in Maru south state constituency.

Mr. Yakubu said this followed the supreme court decision sacking all candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the general election.

It would be recalled that the apex court Friday voided the elections of All Progressive Congress (APC) in the general elections after it ruled the party did not hold a valid primary election.
