INEC Declares Winner Of Nasarawa/Toto Federal Constituency By-Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission has released the results of the by-election in Nassarawa state which has gone the way of the ruling APC. 

INEC on Thursday, declared Ja’afaru Mohammed-Ibrahim of All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the Nasarawa/Toto Federal Constituency by-election.

Dr. Wilfred Uji of the Federal University, Lafia, who is the Constituency Returning Officer for the election, made the declaration in Nasarawa, Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mohammed-Ibrahim won with a total of 55,981 votes to beat his closest rival from the PDP, Hon. Musa Ahmed-Mohammed, who had 17,475 votes.

Uji, who commended the roles played by political stakeholders and security agencies in ensuring a peaceful conduct of the election, called for the sustenance of this culture. If we will recall the May 28th by-election, the election result was put on hold and the winner was not declared due to cancellation of votes in some polling units as a result of over voting.

Four political parties participated during the by-election. And today, the election has been concluded peacefully. For Nasarawa/Toto Federal Constituency, we have a total number of 202,338 registered voters for the election out of which 87,602 were accredited. The total vote cast was 86,805 and we have 85,728 valid votes while rejected votes stand at 1,077.

The four political parties that participated in the bye-election scored the following votes: APC scored 55,981 votes, PDP scored 17,475 votes, APGA 12,227 votes and Labour party (LP) got 45 votes.
