Former Kano state governor Rabi’u Kwankwaso has called upon the people of Kano state to accept the result of the presidential and national assembly elections polls.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senator spoke in Hausa to placate the people over the loss on Tuesday.
Concise News reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) won all the three senatorial seats and many seats of the House of Representatives.
Atiku Abubakar failed to make the minimum 25 per cent of the votes cast in Kano and Yobe States, according to the results announced by INEC.
In the result announced in Kano, Muhammadu Buhari of the APC polled 1,464,768 (78.9%) of the vote cast, while Atiku Abubakar of the PDP polled 391,573 (21.1%).
A candidate must win at least 25 per cent of the votes in two-thirds of the state, apart from winning majority votes to win the presidential election.
