The March 18 governorship election in Kaduna State, which brought in Senator Uba Sani of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has been declared inconclusive.
The declaration was made by the Kaduna State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Kaduna in Thursday.
Sani was declared the winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
But Sani’s emergence as governor was challenged by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Rt. Hon. Isah Mohammed Ashiru.
The PDP challenged the declaration of Sani before the Tribunal and urged it to declare Ashiru as the winner of the election instead.
During the hearing of the petition, the PDP and Ashiru called 24 witnesses and presented claims and documents to prove their case.
The three-man panel of Justices led by Justice Victor Oviawe, ordered a rerun in 24 polling units in seven wards of four local government areas of the State consisting of 16,300 registered voters.
