Moddibo said the All Progressive Congress (APC) won the chairmanship

poll in Lafia, Doma, Karu, Toto, Awe and Wamba LGAs, while elections

were inconclusive in Akwanga, Obi and Nasarawa LGAs.

that results from the four wards of Andaha, Gudi, Akwanga-West and

Akwanga-East were still pending.

“The four affected wards in Akwanga have a voting strength of over

30,000. Therefore, there will be no justification in declaring a

winner without the results from those wards.
