The Emir of Kano, Muhammad Sanusi II, has reacted to the declaration of governorship election in the State as inconclusive by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Emir Sanusi addressing a press conference on Tuesday at his palace urged residents of Kano to be patient and allow INEC to conclude its assignment, regarding the inconclusive gubernatorial elections in some states across the country.
He noted that the electoral body had the authority to conduct and announce the results of election and should be allowed to do its job in Kano.
He said, “INEC had already announced that the election held in Kano on Saturday was inconclusive because there were a number of polling units where elections would be held again and it was after the completion of election at the affected areas that a final winner would be announced by the commission.
“We remind the public that INEC has already disclosed all the votes that were got by candidates of each of the political parties. Those votes are intact and nobody has been denied his votes.
“In subsequent re-run, each candidate will have the votes that are given to him, added to what he has acquired. We should, therefore, give cooperation to all security agencies for peace to continue reigning in Kano.”
