The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has won 17 of the 23 local government chairmanship and councillor elections which were held last Saturday while the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won in four local government areas.

The results were announced yesterday by the returning officers at the various local government area headquarters.

However, elections were suspended in Kaura and Jaba council areas following an attack on the electoral office in the area last Friday night.

In Kagarko Local Government Area, the APC polled 65,226 to defeat the PDP which got 14,658 votes, as announced by the returning officer, Chinedu Richard.

Also, in Kaduna North, Umar Hayatu was declared the APC winner having polled APC 168,572 while the PDP polled 12,467.

In Zaria Local Government Area, the APC won with 42,859 votes against PDP 16,033 votes

The results from Kubau also showed that APC got 46,535 votes to defeat the PDP which polled 13,898.

Similarly, the APC won in Makarfi Local Government Area, the hometown of the former National Chairman of the PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.

Other councils won by the APC included Jama’a, Soba, Kudan Lere, Ikara, Birnin Gwari, Giwa, Kudan, Igabi, Sabon Gari and Kajuru.

The PDP won Zangon Kataf, Kauru, Kachia and Sanga Local Government Areas.

The results of Chikun and Kaduna South Local Government Areas were yet to be released at the time of this report.

Meanwhile, the PDP has kicked against the results, alleging that the process was compromised.

The state Chairman of the party, Hassan Hyat, told THISDAY in a telephone interview yesterday that the returning officers were abducted and results were not declared in many polling units.
