He said that Mr Gyang’s closest opponent, Rufus Bature of the APC, secured 171,233 votes.

Similarly, Francis Kwase, the Returning Officer for Jos North/Bassa House of Representatives elections, while declaring the result of the contest for that seat, said that the polls were inconclusive.

Mr Kwase, who made the declaration in Jos, said that the decision followed the cancellation of votes from Tudun Wada/Kabong ward in Jos North Local Government Area.
