Kwara gov wins polling unit

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has won his Idi-Igba Polling Unit 004 of Adewole Ward in the state's Ilorin West Local Government Area.

According to the Independent National Electoral Commission's official results, the APC received 243 votes in the governorship election, while the PDP received 58.

Following reports of low turnout in some areas, the governor earlier urged more voters to exercise their right to vote.

However, his polling unit and many areas of Adewole ward saw high turnout.

"It's been a mixed bag in terms of turnout — appreciably large in some places and quite low in others — and we urge more people to come out," he said after voting alongside his wife, Ambassador Olufolake AbdulRazaq, and other family members.

"The turnout in this polling unit is impressive. However, turnout nationwide, including in parts of Kwara state, is slightly lower than in the presidential and national assembly elections.

"On the BVAS, the reports so far show that there are improvements, compared to the last elections," he said.

The governor also praised the early arrival of polling officers, expressing confidence that he will be re-elected by Kwarans based on his performance in various sectors of the state.
