Adamawa election: APC, PDP share State Assembly seats

By - - [ ]

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday, announced that the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party won 11 seats each in the Adamawa House of Assembly election held on Saturday.

Mr Kasim Gaidam, the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner in Adamawa, who made the announcement in Yola, said that African Democratic Congress won one seat in the election.

Gaidam said ADC won a seat in Mayo-Belwa Local Government Area.

He pointed out that Adamawa had 25 members in the State House of Assembly.

‘‘The two remaining State Assembly Election of Uba/Gaya and Nassarawo/Binyeri in Hong and Mayo-Belwa local government areas would be conducted on March 23.’’

Gaidam said the Nassarawo-Binueri State Assembly election was deferred due to the death of the APC candidate before the election.

He said “the Uba/Gaya State Assembly election could not be concluded on March 9 due to cancellation of results in some polling units.’’

NAN reports that Gaidam also said that of the eight seats for the House of Representatives in the state, both APC and PDP each won four seats.

He said PDP got two senators from Adamawa Northern and Southern Senatorial Districts while APC won Adamawa Central.

On the state governorship supplementary election in the 44 polling units, he said the Commission had fixed 23 March for the re-run election.
