PDP sweeps Adamawa LG polls

26 November 2012, 15:15

Adamawa  - The People's Democratic Party (PDP) has won all the 19 chairmanship seats so far declared by the Adamawa State Independent Electoral Commission.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the election was conducted on Saturday.

Chairman of the commission, Zailani Ahmed, who declared the results on Monday in Yola said, however, that results for two local governments were inconclusive.

The local governments are Madagali and Song.

Ahmed explained that election did not hold in Madagali Local Government due to violence and destruction of election materials.

``In Song Local Government, we also have violent incidences, which affected the exercise in many wards.

``We are going to conduct that of Madagali on Monday while that of Song will be conducted at a later date,’’ Ahmed said.

NAN reports that the chairman issued certificates of return to winners of the election immediately after the announcement of the results.

One of the winners, Mrs Hilda Eneas of Lamurde Local Government emerged as the first elected female chairman in the state.
