Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate Dauda Lawal has unseated Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle.

As declared by the The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the governor-elect, Lawal polled a total of 377,726 votes, to defeat Matawalle of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who scored 311,976 votes.
He was announced as the winner in Gusau, the state capital in the early hours of Tuesday.
This came after some mild drama over the presentation of the results for Maradun Local Government Area (LGA), where allegations surfaced that the Collation Officer, Dr Ahmed Kainuwa, had been abudcted.
However, upon arrival at state collation centre at the INEC headquarters in Gusau, Kainuwa gave the reasons for his delayed appearance.
