The ruling party won 15 of the 17 chairmanship seats while the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won the other two.

The polls were postponed in four of the 23 local government areas to September 25 over security concerns.

An initial sensation was recorded when the PDP won in Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s Unguwan Sarki polling unit in Kaduna North LGA.

However, the APC rallied to win the chairmanship and most of the councillorship seats in the council.

The APC also won in the home councils of top PDP chieftains, including of former Vice President Namadi Sambo and former Governor Ahmed Makarfi.

Deputy Governor Hadiza Balarabe also delivered Sanga Local Government in the PDP-leaning southern senatorial district to the APC.

The poll will hold in three weeks in Birnin Gwari, Chikun, Zangon Kataf, and Kajuru LGAs following the postponement for security reasons

The councils won by the APC include: Kagarko, Kubau, Kudan, Lere, Zaria, Soba, Sanga, Jema’a, Giwa, Kaduna North, Makarfi, Igabi, Kaduna South, Sabon Gari and Ikara.

The PDP won the chairmanship seats in Jaba and Kaura local government areas.

The chairmanship election in Kachia local government area was declared inconclusive.

The returning officer said cancelled and uncast votes were over 13,000 more than the recorded votes.
