The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate Dauda Lawal has unseated Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Lawal the governor-elect with a total of 377,726 votes after he defeated Matawalle of the All Progressives Congress (APC) who polled 311,976.
He was announced as the winner of the election in the early hours of Tuesday in Gusau.
This followed the presentation of the results for Maradun Local Government Area (LGA), where allegations surfaced that the Collation Officer, Dr. Ahmed Kainuwa, had been abducted.
However, upon arrival at the state collation center at the INEC headquarters in Gusau, Kainuwa gave the reasons for his delayed appearance.
