The re-run election was held yesterday 19th February 2016, at some affected polling units in Mbamnga and Gashaka-Kurmi-Sardauna constituencies. Both parties prepared and contested very hard. It all started when APC candidates took the PDP candidates to court, disputing their victory.
The re-run election results proves that the affected areas made their correct choices from the onset.
So far there has not been reports of violence, ballot box snatching or any form of cheating. Things went orderly and observers from both parties were there to observe irregularities.
It is becoming obvious that our elections are becoming more free and fair. We hope this trend will be maintained in the coming elections. Once again, we wish the Victors happy ruling and pray the opponents will accept defeat in the spirit of sportsmanship.
