Five days after Kaduna State organised an electronic voting for the local government elections, the results have finally been announced.
Elections were suspended in two LGAs of Kaura and Jaba while the result of Kajuru and Chikun is still not ready because of a rurun that will take place in some wards.
Elanza News had earlier reported that the returning officers absconded with the result sheets shortly after the Saturday’s voting, only to reappear in Kaduna and announced their results.
Some of the returning officers who were unlucky, were captured by youths who forced them to announced their result at the collation centres.
The delay in the announcement of the result which came five days after the conduct of the election has raised several concern on the electronic voting system that had result sheets filled with pen in ‘secret locations.’
The chairperson, Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) Dr. Saratu Dikko while announcing the result said APC won 14, while PDP won 4.
She explained that the results had already been announced at the wards for councillorship and LGA collation centres for chairmanship.
