The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) Thursday presented certificates of return to Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal and his running mate, Alhaji Muhammad Mannir Dan Iya.

Also presented with similar certificates of return were the 30 state assembly members elect.

Presenting the certificates, INEC National Commissioner in charge of Sokoto, Kebib and Zamfara states, Mrs. Amina Zakari said the commission remains committed to the course of ensuring smooth and transparent conduct of elections.

According to her “we have concluded the 2019 polls exercise, we are looking forward to 2023 with a reminder to Nigerians that sustainable democracy can only be achieved through peaceful, free, fair, transparent and credible polls.”

Zakari urged politicians and political parties to always ensure democratic process dictate the phase of their activities by adherence to INEC guidelines as well peaceful conduct before, during and after elections.

She however, regretted that Sokoto state which was known for its peaceful electioneering process had in the just concluded polls lost its place due to violence and other wrongs.

“This is the first time in many years we are experiencing this. I will like to state clearly that narrow lead margin was not the only reason why elections are declared inconclusive but violence and other reasons.

In his brief remarks, the state REC, Sadiq Musa Abubakar who noted that the journey to the successful conclusion of the elections in the state was not an easy task said INEC was able to deliver a credible and transparent exercise that ensured every voted counted to the last moment when the rerun was conducted.

However, shortly after being presented with his certificate of return amidst ovation from teeming supporters and well-wishers, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal reassured of his resilience to building a Sokoto state that would symbolise prosperity for the people.

He said nothing would be left out in the course of transforming the state and its people “we will respect and channel our efforts based on the lofty campaign promises to our people.”
