Kaduna state governor Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, lost his polling unit to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Saturday’s Local government elections.
Announcing the results for the El-Rufai’s Angwan Sarki 001 polling unit, the Presiding Officer, Mohammed Sani said, in the Chairmanship election, the PDP scored 86 votes while the APC got 62 votes.
Sani said in the councillorship election, the PDP scored 100 votes while the APC recorded 53 votes.
The governor had earlier in an interview after casting his vote, expressed disappointment about the low turnout of voters in the council polls.
“What worries me is that I noticed that people didn’t turn out much. I know that in many polling units, there were challenges with the Electronic Voting Machines. Some machines were taken to the wrong polling units, so they had to be changed. So people who came out early to vote, thought that the voting had not started,” he said.
