PDP, APC, other Political Parties Gear Up For Supplementary Legislative Elections

Political parties, including the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party, are set to battle for 93 legislative seats in federal and state parliaments in Saturday’s supplementary elections.

Supplementary governorship elections will hold in Adamawa and Kebbi states on the same day.

In the general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission declared winners for 26 governorship, 104 senatorial, 329 House of Reps members and 935 state assembly seats.

INEC had also declared several polls inconclusive, while the electoral umpire cancelled several others due to irregularities and violence.

The commission had scheduled the supplementary polls for April 15 where voters in five senatorial districts, 31 federal and 58 state assembly constituencies will determine the winners.

The senatorial elections will be held in Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara. In Sokoto, supplementary elections are to be conducted in Sokoto-North, Sokoto-East and Sokoto-South districts.
