INEC declares PDP’s Dasuki winner of Kebbe rep seat
The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abdusamad Dasuki, as the winner of the Kebbe/Tambuwal federal constituency election in Sokoto State.
Announcing the results on Sunday morning, the returning officer, Professor Abubakar Sidiq Muhammed, said the PDP candidate scored a total number of 47,317 votes to defeat his closest opponent, Kokani Bala Kebbe of the APC who garnered 34,282 votes.
Recall, Dasuki was in the Federal House of Representatives between 2015 and 2019 before he was defeated by Kokani during the 2019 general elections.
The lawmaker-elect was also the former Commissioner for Finance and will be returning to the National Assembly for the second term to replace APC’s Kokani Bala Kebbe, who had defeated him before.
