PDP 293,201

The results shows Mallam El Rufai  of the APC scoring 864,693 votes over Alh. Mukhtar Ramalan Yero of the PDP, who scored 293,201 votes.
Meanwhile, Chief Returning Officer for Kaduna State gubernatorial election, Professor Jafar Kaura has announced a short break around 12 noon, as the results from the remaining 8 LGAs are being awaited.

As the remaining results are being awaited, Kaduna  is breathless, with most of the streets deserted in anticipation of the wild, “violent” jubilation that visited the victory of Gen. Mohammadu Buhari, as President-Elect under the APC penultimate week. Scores were killed  in self-caused  accidents and many more secured injuries in many northern areas of the state from weird jubilation over the victory.

But, it would seem as if government is determined to reduced that kind of jubilation, as ferocious looking, armed police and military personell were seen manning many of the likely hot areas of Kaduna town.
