Using results from the 21 local government areas in the state collated, a former governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako, has reclaimed the governorship seat he lost 10 days ago.
The ruling Peoples Democratic Party's candidate garnered 302, 986 votes to beat his Action Congress of Nigeria challenger, Markus Gundiri, who polled 260, 405 votes. The candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, Buba Marwa, was only been able to win 107, 564 votes.
Mr. Nyako won 13 of the 21 local goverments while the ACN candidate prevailed in eight.
By winning the majority of votes and 25 per cent of votes in two-thirds of the local government areas in the state, Mr. Nyako has fulfilled the constitutional requirements to be pronounced winner.
Mr. Marwa, a former military administrator and presidential aspirant, was not able to win anywhere. He was roundly defeated in his home local government of Michika.
