The APC received 62 votes, while the PDP received 86 votes, according to Presiding Officer Muhammad Sani, who announced the results at the end of the voting.
The total number of votes cast for the chairmanship position, he said, was 159.
For the Councilorship position, the PDP was also 100 votes ahead of the ruling APC.
Before Saturday’s election, the governor expressed confidence in the voting process, saying that the outcome should be acceptable to all parties involved because rigging was nearly impossible.
For fear of attack, KAD-SIECOM had postponed elections in four local government elections: Kajuru, Birnin Gwari, Zagon Kataf, and Chikun, which were scheduled to take place on Saturday.
