The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Kano on Thursday presented certificates of return to an additional 13 members-elect of the Kano State House of Assembly.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Abdu Zango, presented the certificates to the elected members across NNPP and APC at the commission’s headquarters in Kano.
Zango charged them to rise above political allegiance and place the interest of the people first.
“When I came to Kano State about five months ago, I promised to conduct an election that everyone would be proud of.
“Though it has not been easy, Alhamdulillah, that promise has been kept. As you can see, the state remains peaceful today because the right thing was done by the commission.
“Kano State is unique and everything about it comes with new dimensions. Yet, we were able to meet up to both the parties’ and the general public expectations.
“Though we had to go for supplementary elections in some polling units, which represent only two per cent of the total polling units in the state.
“Today, every winner has been declared and issued his Certificate of Return which marks the end of the 2023 election activities in Kano state,” the REC said.
Zango lauded leaders of political parties for demonstrating political maturity during and after the election.
