The March 18 gubernatorial elections in Kaduna state have been declared inconclusive by the Election Petition Tribunal.
In a split decision of a ratio of 2:1, the tribunal directed that a supplementary election should be held by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) within 90 days.
INEC is to conduct election in 7 wards in 4 Local Government Areas.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is challenging the election of Uba Sani as the Governor of Kaduna State on the grounds of alleged irregularities and electoral fraud, saying that its Candidate (Isa Mohammed Ashiru) won the election.
During the hearing of the petition, the PDP and Ashiru called 24 witnesses and presented claims and documents to prove their case.
