Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Aliyu Detti Yako has been declared the winner of the Saturday rerun election in Kiru/ Bebeji Federal Constituency of Kano state.

 

Yako defeated former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation Abdulmumin Jibrin of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

 

Jibrin scored 13,507 votes while the winner got a total of 48,601 votes

 

Nigeria Info investigation reveals that the APC leadership in the state allegedly ganged up against Jibril by directing their members to vote for the opposition PDP candidate. This was allegedly a payback move against Jubril who in 2019 allegedly worked against the re-election of Governor Umar Ganduje.
