The candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), Muktar Idris, has been declared the winner of the Zamfara governorship election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said Mr Idris won in the 14 local government areas of the state.

According to the official results announced by the state’s INEC returning officer, Kabiru Bala, Mr Idris polled 534,541 votes to defeat his closest opponent, Bello Matawalle of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who scored 189,452 votes.

The result showed a margin of 345,089 votes in favour of the APC’s candidate.


The total registered voters in the state stood at 1,717,128 while the accredited voters were 823,294.

Also, the total valid votes stood at 792,938, rejected votes were 17, 844 while the total votes cast were 810,782.

“That the APC’s candidate, Muktar Shehu Idris, having polled the highest number of votes, is hereby declared winner and returned elected,” Mr Bala declared.

A 45-year-old- graduate of Economics from the Bayero University, Kano, the governor-elect went against all odds to clinch the APC ticket for the poll.

He was a financial manager and the immediate past finance commissioner in the state.
