APC thumps PDP in states under emergency rule

2015-03-31 16:46

Abuja - The three states under emergency rule have voted for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a move seemingly highlighting the communities’ aversion of the handling of the B.ook Haram crisis by the People’s Democratic Party-led Federal Government.

According to results released on Tuesday, APC overwhelmed the PDP by 446 265 votes to 25 526 votes in the presidential.

This completes the APC’s clean sweep of the territories worst affected by terror.

Earlier results suggested the opposition party had claimed victory in Adamawa and Borno, two of the other states pummeled by Boko Haram.
