The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost Saturday’s chairmanship and councillorship elections in Governor Nasir el-Rufai’s polling unit, as the main opposition party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) won both elections.
El-Rufai had earlier voted at his Polling Unit 01 Ungwar Sarki, Kaduna North local government area of the state, where he said his target was not to win all the polls but to improve the voting process and ensure that nobody can rig this and future polls using the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM).
