The NRM Governorship candidate however, declared his acceptance of the final outcome of the results of the election and recognized Distinguish Senator Uba Sani as the duly elected governor of Kaduna State.

It was a hotly contested battle, which every sane mind would discern its fair level ground. The election has been free and fair and among the best ever conducted in the state, away from the usual rancor and violence that characterized the previous ones.

The people of Kaduna State had spoken by the outcome of the election. What is needed now is the support of all irrespective of political differences to join hands and build the Kaduna state of our dream.” said the NRM Governorship Candidate.
