The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Saturday, conducted rerun elections in 20 polling units of Kura/Garun Malam and 33 polling units in Rimin Gado/Tofa state constituencies.

In the results announced by INEC on Sunday, Bello Muhammad Butu-Butu of the NNPP was declared winner of the Saturday’s rerun election in Rimin Gado/Tofa constituency.

Also, Alhassan Zakariya Ishaq of NNPP won the House of Assembly by-election in Kura/Garun Malam constituency.

Prof. Shehu Musa Galadanchi, the returning officer of Kura/Garun Malam state Assembly rerun, declared Alhassan Zakariya Ishaq of the NNPP as winner of the election in the constituency.

Ishaq garnered 37,262 votes to defeat Musa Hayatu Daurawar of APC who scored 30,803 votes.
