Alhaji Sabo Garba, the Chairman of the Electoral Committee in the state, announced the result in Gombe on Saturday after the election by the congress from Bayo and Shani local government areas of Borno.
He said that the congress election conducted two weeks ago was declared inconclusive due to some challenges which resulted in the two local governments not casting their votes.
Garba said, “we started this election two weeks ago in Maiduguri; we now came back to complete it here in Gombe with the remaining two local governments that were unable to vote.
“However, we concluded election peacefully today without any problem.”
The electoral committee chairman said the choice of Gombe to conclude the election was because it was closeer to the two local governments.
He added that Gaddama scored 553 votes to defeat Usman Baderi who scored 525 votes.
He explained that the Secretary, Baba Mustapha, scored 553 votes to defeat Alhaji Yusuf Dikko who had 499 votes, while Baba Sheriff Abba, declared the state’s Youth Leader scored 529 votes to defeat Alhaji Usman who had 527 votes.
