The March 9 gubernatorial election has officially produced 23 governors-elect as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has collated and announced results from the various states of the federation.
Elections were held in 30 States as 6 other states have had their gubernatorial elections in previous years due to chiefly the consequences of court cases nullifying some of their earlier elections and thus changing their electoral cycles. Some of those states include Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, Kogi Anambra and Bayelsa States.
However, the number stands at 23 states owing to INEC’s declaration of the outstanding elections as inconclusive or completely halting the process as in Rivers State.
States with inconclusive guber polls include Plateau, Adamawa, Bauchi, Benue, Sokoto, and Kano.
