The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the Kano state governorship election inconclusive.

Bello Shehu, returning officer for the election, announced this at the state collation center on Monday.

He based the action on the margin between the two leading candidates and the cancelled votes in the election. Shehu said a winner could not be declared since the number of cancelled votes was higher than the figure between Abba Yusuf of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Abdullahi Ganduje of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Yusuf polled a total of 1,014,353 votes ahead of Ganduje who secured 953,522 votes, leaving a margin of 26,655 votes.

A total of 100,873 votes were cancelled in the election.

The collation of Kano eelction was fraught with controversies, leading to suspension of the process around 1:30 am on Monday.

The delay in submitting the result of Nasarawa local government area prompted this. It was later announced that suspected hoodlums attacked the local government collation center and and disrupted the process.

The returning officer of the election had asked for fresh collation of Nasarawa result.

The commission had earlier declared the election inconclusive in Adamawa,Benue, Sokoto,Bauchi Plateau where the PDP was leading apart from Plateau.
