LG Elections: El-Rufai Loses Polling Unit To PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party has won the chairmanship and councillorship seats in Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s Ungwar Sarki polling unit in Kaduna North Local Government Area.

El-Rufai, a member of the All Progressive Congress, had earlier voted at the polling unit where he also declared that he is not desperate to win at all costs, but to improve the voting process using the Electronic Voting Machine.

According to the Governor, the introduction of the electronic voting system by his administration has clearly shown that the APC-led government in Kaduna state does not believe in cheating or rigging election.
