Kaduna State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has won a second term in office after winning the supplementary election held on Saturday amid violence and voter intimidation.

But after the March 23 supplemtary polls, the total figures for APC stood at 1,033,695 votes against 1,024,713 votes secured by PDP, meaning Ganduje won with a margin of 8,982 votes.
Four polling units were cancelled in Gama Ward in Nasarawa LGA due to incidents of over voting and violence. A total of 2,639 votes were cancelled.
The results collation and declaration were made in a very chaotic atmosphere with PDP representatives storming out of the centre as the declaration was about to be made.
