Ortom, Lalong, Ganduje, Tambuwal win elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission has released the results of the supplementary governorship election it conducted in some states after it declared the initial poll in the affected states inconclusive.

The states where the governorship run-off poll was held are Sokoto, Plateau, Kano, Benue and Bauchi.

But while INEC has declared governors-elect in four of the states, it has not done same in Bauchi state due to a legal reason.

In the election results declared, the Sokoto state Governor, Aminu Tambuwal and his Benue state counterpart, Samuel Ortom, fought hard battles to emerge victorious at the governorship supplementary election conducted in their states.
