    The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has won Saturday’s rerun election into the House of Representatives for Magama/Rijau Federal Constituency in Niger state.

    The election which was marred by violence saw the APGA defeating the ADC and the People’s Democractic Party (PDP) in the result released by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

    APGA Candidate, Salihu Salleh polled a total of 22,965 votes to beat his closet Challenger Emmanuel Alamu Endoza of the PDP who polled 22,507 votes and the ADC candidate, Halilu Yussuf who scored 316 votes.

    According to the result sheet made available to newsmen, a total votes cast in the election was 46,499, total valid votes was 45808 and the total rejected votes was 691.

    There were 169,000 registered voters in the Manama/Rijau federal constituency.

    The All Progressive Congress (APC) did not take part in the election having been disqualified by the court.

    There were reported cases of violence in some polling units in Ibeto and Rijau towns but the poll was generally peaceful in other polling units.

    Three INEC Commissioners including the National Commissioner in Charge of Voters Education Mr Festus Okoye monitored the election

    It looks unbelievable that APGA will win election in northern state of Nigeria. This should motivate the party to scater their members in every part of the country build the party again.


    Wow I love this APGA to wine in a northern state it really great


    Kudos to APGA for the winning. The problem is that the person will soon decamp to another political party.
