LIVE! INEC begins collation of Katsina governorship result
The Independent electoral commission in Katsina State has begun the collation of results from Local Government Areas across the state for the gubernatorial elections conducted yesterday.
Recall that INEC in the Katsina State has on Wednesday commenced the transportation and subsequent distribution of sensitive materials for Saturday’s governorship and the House of Assembly elections to various LGAs of Katsina State.
The commission said no fewer than 18 candidates would be contesting the governorship election in the state while 316 candidates would vie for the 34 seats in the state House of Assembly.
But pundits believe that the contest is between the two leading parties in the state; the ruling APC and the opposition, PDP.
Senator Yakubu Lado is the candidate for the PDP while incumbent Governor Aminu Bello Masari is the candidate of APC.
APC = 23,143
PDP = 11,662
