Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi on Thursday emerged as the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Nov. 16 Governorship election.
Bello emerged winner of the governorship ticket by polling 3,369 votes to beat eight other aspirants who contested the governorship primaries conducted by the party in Lokoja. If Senator Dino Melaye emerges winner from the PDP line up, it might be the return of the titans for the two arc-rival.
Gov. Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, who was the Chairman of the electoral panel that conducted the process, said that Mr Babatunde Irukera came second with 109 votes while Rep. Hassan Bewa came third with 44 votes.
He said Mr Yahaya Audu got 10 votes while Mr Sani Abdulahi polled seven votes.
He also said that Mr Abubakar Bashir got three votes.
Badaru also said that Mrs Blessing Ekele, Mrs Hadiza Ibrahim, Mr Yakubu Mohammed and Mr Danlami Mohammed scored zero votes.
According to Badaru, 3,596 accredited delegates voted during the primaries election out of which 54 votes were declared invalid. (NAN)
