2023 Governorhip Election

BREAKING: PDP’s Dauda Lawal Dislodges Matawalle In Zamfara

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

PEOPLES Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Dauda Lawal, has dislodged Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawalle of the APC in the March 18 governorship election.

This is seen as one of the biggest upsets of the 2023 General Elections with an incumbent seeking a second term being uprooted from his seat.

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 in Gusau, the state capital, in the early hours of Tuesday.

The announcement, however, came after some mild drama over 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 state collation centre at the INEC headquarters in Gusau, Kainuwa gave the reasons for his delayed appearance.
