The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has resumed the collation of the supplementary governorship election results in Bauchi state.

Festus Okoye, a national commissioner of INEC, disclosed this on Monday evening.

He said the commission will conclude the remaining result — from Tafawa Balewa LGA — and announce the winner of the poll on Monday.

INEC is resuming the process hours after a federal high court in Abuja struck out a suit seeking to stop the collation, which was filed by Mohammed Abubakar, Bauchi state governor and candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election.

In the initial poll which ended up inconclusive, Abubakar was defeated by the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Bala Mohammed who got 469,512 votes as against his 465,453 votes.

The supplementary election conducted on Saturday saw him lose again to Mohammed with 5,117 votes while the PDP candidate got 6,376 votes, widening the gap between the two with 5,318 votes.

According to figures from INEC, Tafawa Balewa has a total of 22,759 registered voters, and the final result is expected to be announced on Monday night.
