Following the computation of the last results of the Area Council Elections in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) winner of the chairmanship election in Abaji Area Council.

The INEC returning officer of the council election in at Abaji, Prof. Gabriel Mordi, who announced the result at the commission office on Sunday, declared that APC scored 7, 289 votes to defeat the candidate of the opposition PDP, Alhaji Yahaya Garba Gawu, who got 4, 062 votes.

According to Prof Mordi, the winner will be announced after the determination of the case before the court in Abuja.

The Street Reporters Newspaper recalls that APC chairmanship aspirant in the area, Abubakar Umar Abdullahi, has filed a suit before Supreme court, after an FCT High court and Appeal court hasd nulified his candidature and declared Alhaji Mohammed Angulu Loko, as the authentic chairmanship candidate of APC for the last April 23, 2021 primaries in the area.
