Gov. Yari of APC re-elected in Zamfara

Gov. Abdulaziz Yari of the All Progressive Congress has been re-elected in Zamfara State.
In the result declared Monday in Gusau, the Returning Officer, Abdullahi Zuru, declared Mr. Yari winner with a total vote of 716,964.

His closest rival, who is also his father in-law, Mamuda Shinkafi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), scored 201,938 votes.

The All Progressives Grand Alliance candidate and National Secretary of the party, Sani Shinkafi, polled 2,385 votes to come third.

The declaration of the results was earlier on Sunday marred by irate youths demanding that the PDP candidate be declared winner.

They were however dispersed by a joint security team made up of the army, police and personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

    Nice writeup. Nigerians who hate Buhari must separate their hatred from the situation which calls for patriotism giving that the good name of Nigerians working in the US have been muddied by Trump’s hate-fiiled assertions.
