Kaduna LG Elections Results to be released today

The Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) is set to announce the results of Saturday’s local government elections today.

Elections were conducted by the commission in the 255 wards and 23 local governments in the state on Saturday using the electronic Voting Machine, the first time it is used in a local government election in Nigeria.

The election ran into hitches in some local governments leading to the suspension of the process in two local governments, Sanga and Jaba.

Voters in many local governments also complained about electoral officers absconding from their duty posts after voting have been concluded.

The results were expected within 48 hours of conclusion of the exercise but the official results are yet to be announced five days after as the results keep coming in trickles.

Informed sources at KADSIECOM told our correspondents this morning that all processes have been concluded and that the results would be announced today evening.

 “We will brief the press at about 6:00 PM today on that,” he source stated.
