Nigeria’s governorship and House of Assemblies voting has ended and the collation of results has started across the country.
These Governorship elections were held in 28 states and in 36 states for legislative post.
Our field reportage in Jalingo noted Lt. Col Agbu Kefas of People Democratic Party (PDP) leads by a wide margin in the collated and announced polling units visited.
The state did not report high level of marred elections from our interim survey.
If the trend of announced continued across the state, then one can presumed PDP retaining the state with the younger, former Military Officer.
He has promised in his manifesto to focus on bringing the state together, develop the youth’s enterprising, opened the land to agricultural development, drive in investments, mobilise for more women in governance and provide an inclusive governance among others.
The main collation of results is expected this morning in Jalingo, the State’s capital.
