Kano Election: APC sweeps LG polls


The All Progressive Congress (APC) candidates have swept the 44 council seats in Kano State Local Government polls.








Chairman, Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) Prof. Garba Sheka, who announced the election results said APC won all the 484 councillorship positions with a wide gap in an election participated by 25 political parties.

He added that the election which was conducted in a peaceful manner had recorded success due to the large turnout of the electorate and the deployment of security personnel.

The KANSIEC Chairman attributed the late commencement of the election to the late arrival of some of the voting materials which were brought from China.

The commission had earlier received three consignments of the materials, but the last batch arrived Kano at about 12:45 a.m on the Election Day despite all efforts to ensure it arrived earlier.

The commission apologies for the inconveniences caused by delay and promised to make amends and avoid reoccurrence of such delay in the next elections’’.
