Written by thereachfm on December 2, 2019
The Niger State Independent Electoral Commission has announced the results of the Chairmanship and Councillorship elections from 23 local government areas, out of which the All Progressives Congress has won 22 Chairmanship seats while PDP won 1 seat.
Announcing the results, the chairman of the commission, Aminu Baba said eighty-five candidates contested for the position of Chairman, while six hundred and sixty-one candidates contested for the position of councilor across the 25 local government areas.
Baba, however, said the commission recorded success despite the hitches and commended the security agencies in the state for their support.
The elections on Saturday witnessed a low turnout of voters across the twenty-five local government areas, with some voters refusing to come out and vote because of what they described as poor performance of politicians after being elected.
