The PDP, which was the dominant party at the councils before the elections, lost at all the six area councils
The APC won five chairmanship seats while the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) won one

The Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) chairmanship candidate of the PDP, Bitrus Tanko Kura who spoke after the candidate of the APC was declared winner of the election, said it was sad that the government that wanted to fight corruption could conduct such a shameful election.
He said such an election had never occurred in the history of the Federal Capital Territory.
He alleged that money was shared to voters at various polling units in the open in the presence of security men and nobody was arrested.
