INEC declares APC’s Bomai as winner of Yobe South Senate poll re-run

227

Sen. Ibrahim Bomai of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was on Saturday declared as the senator-elect for Yobe South Senatorial District of Yobe State in a supplementary poll conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Persecondnews recalls that INEC had declared the Feb. 25 election inconclusive following the cancellation of the Polling Unit 003 results in Manawaci in Fika Local Government Area leading to Saturday’s rerun.

According to INEC Returning Officer, Dr Abatcha Melemi of the Federal University Gashua, Bomai scored 69,596 votes to beat Mr Halilu Mazagane of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) who polled 68,885 votes.

Yerima Adamu of ADC scored 652 votes, while Jauro Ishaku of LP scored 471 votes.

In a post-election speech, Bomai attributed the victory to the Almighty Allah, saying:“We are overwhelmed and filled with joy for the resilience and tenacity shown by the multitude of our good people of Yobe South in giving me a second mandate.

“This victory has further emboldened and made me more resolute in my commitment at bringing more people’s oriented projects and programmes.

“As well as completing the ones we started in improving the lives of the common man in Yobe South.”
