INEC, which conducted governorship elections on 9 March in 29 of Nigeria’s 36 states, had earlier declared the winners of polls in 22 states and fixed March 23 for supplementary elections in four states where polls were declared inconclusive.

The governors of Plateau, Benue, Sokoto, and Kano won re-elections after the conduct of supplementary polls in some local government areas of their states.

The All Progressives Congress (APC), based on a breakdown of the results from the 26 states, won in 15 states; while the country’s main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), emerged winner in 11 states.

Meanwhile, results from three states, which are Rivers, Adamawa, and Bauchi, are still outstanding.

While results from Bauchi and Adamawa are being held due to court orders, INEC has not collated those from Rivers.
