The Taraba State governorship election, which was held last Saturday, has been declared inconclusive by the returning officer for the governorship election Prof. Muhamdu Kyari.
Kyari made the declaration in Jalingo Taraba state capital after collating the result from sixteen out of the seventeen local government areas in Taraba state.
He said the reason for the declaration was because the number of cancelled votes was above the gap between APC who came second in the election to PDP who came first.
Election in Donga local government area of the state was cancelled by the returning officer and some other few polling units across the state. The total number scored by PDP in Donga was 37,069 while APC came second with 10,087.
Elections were also cancelled in six poling units of Takum, five in Karim, in Yoro and Ussah local government areas of the state.
