KADSIECOM Chairman, Dr. Saratu Dikko- announcing the official results.

 

Finally  laying to rest the controversy surrounding the conduct of the rescheduled local government election in Chikun LGA in Kaduna State,  the Chairman of the Kaduna  State  Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM),  Dr.  Saratu Dikko-Audu  has declared that there were no elections held.

She expressed this while fielding questions from newsmen outside her office on Thursday.
The KADSIECOM  boss insisted that elections were not held in the LGA in spite of a report that was circulated,  suggesting that the ruling  All Progressives Congress (APC) had been declared winners.
The alleged  Returning Officer,  who  described  himself  as Sani Mohammed  PhD which the PDP  later  in  a press  briefing  on  Thursday  described  as fake,  had announced  that APC won by 56,660 against  PDP score of 28,462.
PDP  chairman  Chikun  LGA  described as a result  manufactured  by  the APC.
it is  still  unclear  if the Returning  Officer  who announced  the result amidst  heavy security  presence  at the Chikun  LGA  Secretariat  in Kujama was the one actually  designated  by the KADSIECOM, seeing  that the result  he announced  has been discredited.
Earlier  on Wednesday  June 6  when the rescheduled  polls  were  to hold,  supporters  of the PDP  had thronged  the LGA Secretariat  where it was alleged  that  some  lawmakers  from the  APC  were said  to  be  in possession  of  sensitive  electoral materials.
They  were  rescued  from  an angry  mob that almost  lynched  them  by a combined  security  forces  team.
