Results from 21 LGAs declared so far in the Sokoto State governorship election show incumbent governor, Aminu Tambuwal of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leading Aliyu Ahmed of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, Fatima Mukhtar, returning officer has adjourned the collation of results in Sokoto state till 9am on Sunday (today).

She made the announcement after she consulted with Amina Zakari, INEC national commissioner in charge of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states.

The returning officer claimed the adjournment was as a result of the non-arrival of results from Kebbe local government areas (LGAS) of the state.

But the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agents and supporters at collation center opposed the decision, saying it as a plot to rig the election.

Before the postponement, Tambuwal of the PDP is in the lead with 10,499 votes against that of APC which is 10,338 in 20 LGAs.
