Nigeria: Senate – Kwankwaso Aborts Sen Lado’s Dream

Kano — Gov Rabi i’u Kwankwaso of Kano state has won the Kano Central Senatorial District in the Saturday’s Presidential and National Assembly elections with landslide.

Kwankwaso, who contested under the platform of APC, aborted the dream of the incumbent Senator, Bashir Lado of the PDP who had sought reelection.

The returning officer for the zone, Prof. Aminu Sulainman, announced the election results in Kano on Monday.

He said Kwankwaso scored 758, 383 votes to defeat Lado who got 205, 809 votes in the contest.

The returning officer, who described the election as peaceful and transparent, stated that the level of sophistication involved in the conduct of the exercise had greatly booted the morale of electorates.

Meanwhile, APC had started jubilating in some major streets in Kano over the stunning success recorded by the party in the state.
