Tambuwal Survives, Narrowly Defeats APC In Sokoto
Ahmad Aliyu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) came close behind with 511,661, losing to his erstwhile principal with just 341votes.
Mr Aliyu was Mr Tambuwal’s deputy governor.
Both men were of the APC until Mr Tambuwal defected to the PDP.
The results of all the local governments where supplementary elections were held in Sokoto have now been announced at the state collation centre.
A final declaration by INEC that Mr Tambuwal has won the election is expected any minute from now.
More details to come.
